This week, the Netherlands passed net neutrality (Internet openness) rules, which will prevent telecom companies from stifling online choice. We’re part of a global pro-Internet community that is, over time, winning the fight for a strong digital future.
Canada also has Internet openness rules, but we just don't have strong enough enforcement powers. The CRTC has, however, gotten better about handling Internet openness complaints over the past year. Keep pushing them.

People in the Netherlands have reason to celebrate today, following the expected passing into law of new net neutrality regulation. The legislation in question was agreed upon back in June last year, but it's only on Tuesday that the nation's second legislative chamber gave its blessing to the move, making everything official. Under the new law, mobile internet providers like KPN won't be able to charge for access to particular services like Skype or throttle traffic through them — both techniques that the company was intent on using to manage its mobile traffic.
