EU approach to net neutrality raises ire of Internet freedom group

The European Union's approach to net neutrality has come in for some ferocious bashing from citizen groups such as La Quadrature du Net, which in turn led to a heated exchange on Twitter between La Quadrature du Net and the EU's digital commissioner, Neelie Kroes, and her team. The advocacy group, which defends the rights and freedoms of citizens on the Internet, said that while seemingly defending net neutrality principle by banning blocking and throttling Internet communications, the European Commission wants to "make it meaningless by explicitly allowing prioritisation." Kroes et. al. responded by saying the advocacy groups are confusing EU citizens. The debate is undoubtedly going to continue in the months ahead. Article
