This report gives an overview of the activities of the NRAs in the course of implementing the net neutrality provisions of Regulation (EU) 2015/2120 and associated BEREC Net Neutrality Guidelines. This report reflects the third year of the application of the Regulation, covering the period from 1 May 2018 to 30 April 2019. BEREC has gathered information from 29 NRAs via an internal questionnaire. NRAs also published national reports on the third year of application of the Regulation. To this information, descriptions of publicly known net neutrality cases or investigations that arose throughout the 12-month reporting period have been added. However, this report does not in any case constitute an exhaustive description of the current actions in the field of net neutrality.
The information in this report is organized according to the provisions of the Regulation. This report shows that NRAs have actively implemented the Regulation. It is evident that during the third year of the application of the Regulation, the adoption of monitoring methods has increased as compared to the previous years. Moreover, quite a few NRAs have dealt with zero-rating and traffic management cases and a handful of formal decisions were reached.
