Telenor Hungary found to infringe net neutrality

Monday 30 January 2017 | 17:15 CET | News
Hungarian communications regulator NMHH announced that Telenor Hungary broke the EU's regulation on net neutrality. The authority said that the operator made an unjustified distinction between specific content types, including social media and its MyChat instant messaging applications and between its MyMusic services and online radio stations. This is disadvantageous to competing services, the regulator concluded. The decision can be contested by Telenor.
