Comment Neelie
[...] I want you to be able to say that you saved their right to access the open internet, by guaranteeing net neutrality.
Guillaume Champeau
Glad to read this, as "guaranteeing net neutrality" is a much different and stronger statement than "guaranteeing transparency on net neutrality violations", which was your position thus far. Do you confirm it is what you intended to say?

Without guaranteed net neutrality we will lose the open internet. It probably is a good idea to clarify what this guarantee would encompass.

I fully support your demand for net neutrality. Recently, we have had an big petition (70k signs in 1 week) in germany about such a law, in reaction to big providers trying to eradicate net neutrality. Please keep up these plans, but dont forget about technical needs for QoS. There is need for VOIP to get prioritized, to ensure emergency calls can get routed and other technical needs. We therefore would suggest to have different layers "of quality", but if VOIP is getting prioritized it doesnt matter if its skype or normal telephones. Net neutrality is about giving fair chances to every market player, which is not impaired by allowing quality assurance for VOIP as an example. Ofc, there is need to discuss publicly and dictate, what services might get excluded from strict "every packet is the same" policy. Thank you.

Without guaranteed net neutrality, internet would lost one big advance. It might be scattered into company areas with walls around them. It would not longer be a instrument able to connect people worldwide. This has to be prevented, so thank you Neelie!
