T-Mobile Netherlands to defend its zero-rating services in court

T-Mobile Netherlands will defend its zero-rating music streaming service in court, opposing a decision of the Dutch telecom regulatory authority according to which the service represents a breach of net neutrality rules. The offer from T-Mobile gives customers with a data plan of 6GB or more per month unlimited data for music streaming from several providers. For the regulatory authority, this represents a violation of the Dutch law (which has a clear ban on price discrimination), while T-Mobile argues that the Dutch legislation goes beyond the EU net neutrality rules and that EU rules should prevail.
