Tele2 deletes tethering prohibition in terms of mobile subscriptions
Tele2 deletes a prohibition on ‘tethering’, the pairing of a smartphone-internet access to other devices, such as laptops and tablets, from his terms.
Several lawyers said Tuesday at NU.nl that that prohibition is contrary to European netneutraliteitsregels.
How Tele2, Fair Use Policy exactly will renew is not known yet. According to spokesman Robin Janszen is about even spoken with the lawyers and with the Authority Consumer & Market (ACM), which oversees compliance with the net neutrality. Different parts of the terms and conditions by the provider provisionally put out of operation.
Tele2 customers in the future, each case, use of different devices, but wants to also “reserved the right to act against abuse of our services”.
How such abuse will be defined is not yet clear; Janszen speaks more of the connection of multiple pcs on a single mobile connection. It is unclear whether Tele2 only wants to avoid a subscription by multiple people shared or that certain types of use by one customer, the abuse will be seen.
The ACM argued Tuesday against NU.nl soon an investigation is launched to the terms and conditions of all major Dutch providers. The watchdog warned last year that there deals were on the market that were in conflict with the netneutraliteitsregels.
