Net Neutrality

Net neutrality is understood to be the equal treatment of all data flows by a network, regardless of sender, recipient, location, content, service and application.

The current internet is based on this principle and allows any internet user, without high cost, to access information, to use or offer services and to communicate. The internet’s openness to anyone and the subsequent low market entry barriers have turned the internet into a catalyst for freedom of speech, growth and innovation. 

If you have a problem with your internet provider regarding net neutrality, our conciliation body can support you.
