Biel/Bienne, 23.10.2014 – Developing the foundations for discussing net neutrality – this was the goal of a Federal Government working group. In the report, published on the website of the Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM), an overview of net neutrality issues was produced. Various stakeholders and experts contributed to the drafting of the report between October 2013 and October 2014.
The Internet Society Switzerland Chapter was represented in this Working Group by National Councilor Balthasar Glättli and its Chairman Bernie Höneisen.
P.S.: Particularly interesting is Appendix 2 (around page 31), which lists some cases of Net Neutrality violations that have been observed till now. Some big Swiss Internet provider insisted this list be moved away from the main report.
