The French Postal and electronic communications regulatory authority, ARCEP, is releasing its discussion points and initial policy guidelines on Internet and network neutrality.
The document is the result of a wide-reaching preliminary examination by the Authority that lasted close to seven months, which included a series of some 50 interviews and a survey – the goal being to consult with the different stakeholders that are affected by the issue of Internet and network neutrality (electronic communications operators, providers of content, services and applications, equipment manufacturers, consumer associations, public authorities, etc.), on a national, European and global scale.
ARCEP is now launching a public consultation on its initial policy guidelines for Internet and network neutrality. This will serve as a reference for the work being carried out by the government to prepare for the report due to be submitted to Parliament by the end of June.
