The Future of the Connectivity:
Why Sender-party-pays Is Not a Solution

21 March 2023, 9:00 – 10:00 CET
Room ASP 1G369
, European Parliament, Brussels

Our main objective of the workshop is to ensure that policymakers at the European Parliament and their teams, are fully aware of the challenges of the proposals from the large telecom operators. Sender-party-pays obligations pose a real threat to the Internet as we know it today, they are against net neutrality provisions and will put Europe to the path of the Internet fragmentation.
