European digital rights groups demand net neutrality protection

ComputerWorldUK - More than 80 European digital rights organisations on Wednesday called on the European Commission to do more to protect net neutrality.

The groups, represented by The European Consumer Organisation (BEUC) and European Digital Rights (EDRi), are demanding an end to "dangerous experimentation with the functioning of the Internet in Europe."

The group said in an open letter to the Commission that operators across Europe are violating Internet neutrality particularly in the mobile sector, where they say there is evidence that companies including ISPs are "using technical measures for their own commercial interests and tampering with citizens' ability to access the Internet."
