US and EU legislators question zero-rating
September 2014
- FCC refocuses the US net neutrality debate on zero-rating over wireless networks while in Europe national telecom regulators and the European Parliament are taking a closer look

- The cabinet of Neelie Kroes, VP European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda, asserted that applications provided over the internet cannot be considered specialised services as they do not meet the technical and commercial characteristics of such services as defined in the Connected Continent draft Regulation

- The German telecom regulator (Bundesnetzagentur) affirmed that zero-rating mobile internet applications such as Spotify, which is not a managed (specialized) service, is a discrimination that infringes net neutrality

- T-Mobile Germany is zero-rating its internet mobile TV video streaming application

- Zero-rating also took centre stage during the net neutrality debates of the 9th Internet Governance Forum in Istanbul
