Peru approves net neutrality regulation

Peruvian regulator Osiptel has approved the country’s net neutrality regulation, following consultations over more than a year. Under the new rules, operators can not arbitrarily block or restrict access to certain applications, domains, IP addresses or services in order to favor the use of their own products. The regulation takes effect from 02 January 2017.

Osiptel said the rules establish the principles of freedom of access and equal treatment in the use of networks, as well as transparency in information to end-users. The regulation also covers traffic management by ISPs and what is allowed to preserve the security and integrity of networks.
