Threat to net neutrality from new fees for online services

Priority question for written answer  P-003784/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Tiemo Wölken (S&D)

In its reply to the letter (dated 12 July 2022) on net neutrality, signed by 54 MEPs, the Commission said it was committed to safeguarding a ‘neutral’ and ‘open’ internet. It also wrote, however, that digital players should be made to contribute to network upgrades, most probably through additional network fees levied on certain online service providers. Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager and Commissioner Thierry Breton take the view that these MEPs and I are ‘completely misguided’ in our belief that a network fee could undermine the principles of net neutrality.
