Internet under threat (sort of)

There is a Telecoms Bill being debated in the European Parliament right now, its second hearing is on Wednesday 6th May. In its present form, it allows providers to limit the content, services, and applications that users can access. The Bill originally contained clauses to safeguard our access to the internet, but these have now been removed. The wiki campaign page has a lot more information.

One thought on “Internet under threat (sort of)

  1. it’s worrying, really. i suspect that there are still areas where there is only one (or maybe one or two) internet service provider. people in more rural areas, one assumes, will be particularly vulnerable to an impoverishment of available information…as if they weren’t already.
