Communications/International Law: U.K. Ofcom Issues Consultation Paper on Net Neutrality, by Jonathan Rusch

On June 24, Ofcom, the independent regulator and competition authority for the United Kingdom communications industries, issued a consultation paper on traffic management and net neutrality. An Ofcom statement reported that the purpose of the consultation paper is to open up a discussion on how existing and future powers “might be used to address traffic management concerns and what stance Ofcom should take on any potential anti-competitive discrimination,” and that the paper “raises questions about transparency and consumers’ awareness of the traffic management policy of the broadband service they have paid for.” Comments may be submitted online, by email, or mail, but must be received by September 9.
