Question for written answer E-007906-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Giulia Moi (EFDD)

 Subject:  Net neutrality
 Answer in writing 

The Federal Communications Commission has voted to dismantle the US rules on net neutrality.

The authorities will cease to regard Internet connections as a public utility on a par with the telephone service, and Internet service providers will no longer be required to guarantee equal treatment for all online services, but will for instance be able to offer priority connection to certain content, make access subject to payment or limit access to users with certain types of subscription.

All this clearly implies a multi-speed Internet, which clearly conflicts with the principles of impartiality and independence of the network espoused by the Commission.

— What measures will the Commission take vis-à-vis the United States Government to protect European citizens who use US Internet connection services?
