Insights Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) publishes updated Open Internet Guidelines for consultation

BEREC has revised and updated its Open Internet Guidelines in the light of the CJEU’s recent rulings in Case C-854/19 Vodafone GmbH v Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Case C-5/20 Bundesverband der Verbraucherzentralen und Verbraucherverbände – Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband eV, and Case C-34/20 Telekom Deutschland GmbH v Bundesrepublik Deutschland, in which the CJEU found that the practice of employing “zero tariffs” is contrary to the general obligation of equal treatment of traffic without discrimination or interference, as required by the open internet access provisions of the Net Neutrality Regulation (2015/2120/EU).

BEREC has published a draft update of its guidance for consultation, which is open until 14 April 2022. To access the update, click here.
