ECTA's statement on the adoption by the EP ITRE Committee on the Open Internet and Net Neutrality in Europe


21 Oct 2011



Today the Industry, Research and Energy Committee of the European Parliament adopted unanimously a draft Motion for a Resolution on the Open Internet and Net Neutrality that reaffirms the crucial role played by competition for the preservation of the open character of the internet. The European Parliament is expected to adopt the text of the Resolution in the November 2011 plenary session.

ECTA said “the European Parliament today has confirmed that effective competition is of paramount importance to guarantee that European consumers benefit from freedom of choice on the internet. ECTA joins the strong call of the Parliament to the European Commission and the Member States to ensure the enforcement of the telecom regulations to achieve this goal”.
