Portal about Net Neutrality[modifier]
Net Neutrality is a concept fundamental to the Internet. It provides the space in which a free-market economy, innovation and fundamental liberties of persons can realize itself. Both for technical and economic reasons, Net Neutrality had been preserved up to now. But it is now increasingly threatened by the network operators who see commercial opportunities in charging for prioritization of certain access over other.

- Announced for June - The Council of the European Union will deliberate on the regulation proposed by the European Parliament (and adopted in first reading on 3rd of April) on the Telecom Single market that contains provisions on Net Neutrality.
How to help Net Neutrality ?[modifier]
The RespectMyNet platform allows citizens to list and inform about Internet access restrictions imposed by operators.
Citizens can submit cases of infringement on the principle of Net neutrality, or confirm those already listed. That way, regulators cannot ignore any longer the numerous access restrictions and “application-specific” techniques which undermine freedom of communication, privacy, as well as competition and innovation online. These reports, even if they draw up an incomplete situation's picture, are already used in the national and European regulators' works. The project will help to increase pressure on the European Commission to legislate on Net neutrality.
If you want to go further, whatever your skills are, you can participate to the development of the project by contacting us in our IRC channel: #nnmon,by email at: contact at laquadrature.net ou by subscribing to the Respect My Net mailing list.
