Today the European Parliament voted on
the European single market for electronic communications that
enshrines the principle of net neutrality into EU law.
- This is a victory for free
competition, for democracy and for a vibrant culture. Now everyone
will be able to participate on equal terms no matter if they are a
small Swedish startup or an international corporation, says Amelia Andersdotter, Member of the European Parliament for the Swedish Pirate Party.
- One should, however, not too quickly claim victories on roaming. Now a fee for so-called fair use is introduced. There is no reason to believe that the fee for fair use makes anything worse for European consumers compared to today’s rules about roaming, but it has not been investigated. There are strongs reasons to question whether it is appropriate that the commission puts huge, uninvestigated proposals to the parliament so shortly before elections, says Amelia Andersdotter (PP).
