The Swiss Parliament is to vote on the revised Telecommunications Act in 2018. The revision aims to adapt the act of 2007 to the latest technological developments. The draft raises concerns over the incumbent Swisscom and is supported by the rest of the industry. The main points raising controversy are access to Swisscom's fibre-optic infrastructure, and network neutrality, reported CEToday.
