Specialised Services and the Net Neutrality Service Model

  • Frode SørensenEmail author


This paper contains a dual presentation of the net neutrality service model as developed through several years of public discourse about regulatory approaches to net neutrality. Particularly in Europe, this model which is used to differentiate between Internet traffic considered in scope of net neutrality and specialised services exempted from net neutrality assessment, has gained prominence trough the political process aiming at a “Connected Continent”.
