Dutch regulator decides zero-rating service does not breach net neutrality

Netherlands’ Authority for Consumers and Markets denied a request by the civil society group Bits of Freedoms to take action against T-Mobile, as the telecom operator was allegedly breaching net neutrality rules through its zero-rated music streaming offer. The authority decided that it had no reason to intervene, as T-Mobile was offering the service on a non-discriminatory basis, and without any harmful effects on users and their rights.
