Internetneutraliteit nog steeds hoog op de Europese agenda

De Raad erkent ‘The importance of preserving the open character of the Internet and ensuring the maintenance of a robust best efforts Internet for all while respecting fundamental rights such as media pluralism, linguistic diversity, freedom of expression and information as well as freedom to conduct a business.’

De Raad onderstreept, onder meer:

- ‘The need to preserve the open and neutral character of the Internet and consider net neutrality as policy objective, which is consistent and interrelated with a number of policy objectives already identified in article 8 of Directive 2002/21/EC (Framework Directive) and with the corresponding provisions included in the amended EU Regulatory Framework for Electronic Communications Networks and  Services, namely in aspects such as the promotion of the ability of end users to access and distribute information or run applications and services of their choice, the increased transparency in the characteristics and conditions of the service providers and the powers conferred to National Regulatory Authorities to impose minimum requirements on quality of service;

-  The need for promotion of innovative solutions by both content providers and electronic communications services operators, including cloud service providers, to foster a unified, non-discriminatory and accessible digital single market, in particular by leveraging the new European Research Framework Programme (Horizon 2020);

-  The need to enhance citizens' and businesses' trust and confidence in the online environment and electronic communications services;

-  The importance of ensuring efficient transparency, i.e. enabling consumers to make better and informed choices, particularly through effective implementation of articles 20 and 21 of Directive 2002/22/EC (Universal Service Directive) and the promotion of innovative technological solutions;

-  The importance of addressing the issues of discrimination and degradation of service that may arise from certain traffic management practices (inter alia blocking, hindering and restrictive connection and interconnection policies), particularly through effective implementation of article 22 of Directive 2002/22/EC (Universal Service Directive);

-  The importance of promoting the ability of users to create, distribute and access online content, applications and services of their choice, as required in Directive 2002/21/EC (Framework Directive);

-  The importance of the application of the principle of technology neutrality, underlying the objectives of the EU Regulatory Framework for Electronic Communications Networks and Services;

De Raad nodigt tenslotte de Europese Commissie, de Lidstaten en andere belanghebbenden uit om met elkaar in discussie te treden en na te denken over mogelijkheden om het open en neutrale karakter van het internet in stand te kunnen houden.
