NET NEUTRALITY: BEREC'S "CONSULTATION" (OR THE DISCOURAGEMENT POLICY)

Paris, 7 june 2016 -- BEREC 1 [2] just published its draft guidelines that
aimes at clarifying the telecoms regulation [3]2 [4] and therefore the net
neutrality. After secret negociations between the national regulators
(ARCEP in France) and BEREC it seems that nothing was put in place in order
to facilitate the
 consultation process.
 La Quadrature du Net calls on all internet users who care about a strong
defense of net neutrality to join and to answer together to this
consultation.. 

The draft guidlines are only published in english and this doesn't make the
reading of a technical text easy for non-native english speakers. On the
other hand the only way to answer to the consultation is to send an email
that doesn't exceed 2MB and preferably in english, even though nothing is
specified concerning the way answers in other languages will be taken into
account. 

In order to compensate the lack of transparency of this procedure, La
Quadrature du Net in cooperation with other organisations launched in March
a consultation [5] that is still available and also a plateforme [6] that
enable people to reveal any infrigement of net neutrality from operators
within the European Union. 

Today we want to enable as many people as possible to take part in the
consultation. This is why we publish BEREC's guidelines on a plateforme
that allows comments [7] : thus everyone will be able to take part in a
transparent manner and help us to formulate collectively our answers to the
consultation. This approach also aims at inviting everyone to give their
opinions to BEREC. 

In order to make the guidelines even more accessible we suggest to work
collaboratively on a translation into french [8]. 

WE INVITE EVERYONE TO TAKE PART IN THIS CONSULTATION AND TO RECLAIM THIS
ISSUE THAT SHOULD NOT REMAIN THE PRIVATE PRESERVE OF THE BIG TELECOM
OPERATORS.
