Version 1.5b Castle in the Sky
lecture: Net Neutrality in Europe
alea iacta est
After two years the fight for net neutrality in Europe about the Telecom Single Market Regulation has come to a close. In this talk we will analyse the new net neutrality law and it's consequences and we give you the lessons learned from two years of EU campaigning.
On 30c3 we launched the SaveTheInternet.eu campaign. Since then activists from all around Europe fought for net neutrality and the freedom of the open internet. At 32c3 the the legislative process in Europe will have come to a close and the campaign will be mostly over.
In this talk we will look back and try to learn from past mistakes and successes. What has worked and what didn't? What will the new net neutrality law in Europe actually mean in practice? We assess the repercussions for the European internet and also for the global fight for net neutrality, particularly in the global south.
