Net neutrality among the 2017 priorities of the Swedish telecom regulator

The Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) has announced that network neutrality will be among its priorities in 2017, together with monitoring competition on the broadband market and introducing tougher non-discrimination requirements. The regulator said that, when it comes to net neutrality, it will put the emphasis on event-driven regulation of Internet service providers’ business models. Shortly after PTS’s reinforcement of its commitment to monitoring net neutrality, telecom company Telia Sweden announced that it was extending its zero-rating services, despite these already being controversial because of their implications for net neutrality.
