French telecom regulator ARCEP has launched a public consultation on net neutrality following a request by the country’s parliament.
Parliament has asked the regulator to consider issues of internet transparency, quality of service, interconnection and traffic management. ARCEP’s starting point is a series of six principles outlined two years ago.
The consultation will be open for submissions until June 20.
Over the summer, ARCEP will establish indicators of the quality of fixed-line broadband services in line with work already done for mobile networks. It will also collect information on interconnection agreements between internet players. Finally, it will look into traffic management practices, where the regulator said it had some concerns particularly relating to mobile broadband networks.
