ACM is not in appeal in case T-Mobile about net neutrality
The Authority Consumer & Market (ACM) is not in appeal in the T-Mobile case brought about the offer of a datavrije muziekbundel to customers.
Reports that the ACM Tuesday afternoon.
In april of this year ruled a judge that T-Mobile’s datavrije bundles, in which customers no data consumption for streaming music, just are allowed. The ACM demanded a ban on such actions, because it would be contrary to the Dutch net neutrality.
According to the court, the Netherlands was not authorized to make such prohibition, because at the European level, legislation is net neutrality in which “zero-rating” services cannot be banned.
The ACM said to have reached his goal with the research into T-Mobile’s datavrije muziekbundel. “We have the matter taken up, to clarify whether the Dutch act may, in addition to the European regulation,” said board member Henk Don.
“That clarity is there now. We submit ourselves to the judgment of the court.” ACM examines, however, whether the zero-rating-bundle of T-Mobile complies with the European legislation.
