[Open Source Lisbon] Innovation and Net Neutrality two sides of one coin

65 views

Published on

27. September 2018

A free and open internet is one where innovation can happen without the permission of a telecom company. The three biggest mobile operators in Portugal with a combined market share of 95% all violate this principle of net neutrality and thereby create a walled garden that kills off economic growth. The internet was far more successful than any previous communication network, because it allowed innovators to compete globally from day one and gave users the freedom to choose between the best products. These benefits are lost if telecom companies are allowed to pick winners and losers and undermine our freedom to choose and offer the services we want. The European Union established protections for net neutrality in 2016. If these rules would be properly enforced in Portugal, companies would not suffer a competitive disadvantage against Silicon Valley giants or applications owned by telecom companies. It is time to ask the tough questions to politicians and regulators why our freedoms online are not protected. This talk will give an overview about the situation in Europe and locate Portugal and its telecom market within it.

"Zero-Rating is killing innovation in the internet."

 the network simply moves the data
 and leaves interpretation of the data
 to the applications at either end.
 This minimalism in design is intentional. It reflects both a political decision about disabling control and a technological decision about
 the optimal network design.”
