At this time, when net neutrality is compromised, when some basic rights existing from the beginning of the web can no longer be respected, when access to information may be in danger depending on its publication format … redneutral is born. org.
Net Neutral is a page where information is collected about net neutrality in any country.
We are not an organization, we are a group of citizens who use the internet daily to communicate, to work or to play, who are concerned that the internet will end up being controlled by companies that are tempted to control the information that can be seen on the internet.
In Chile it worked with neutralidadsi.org, let’s see if in Spain we can advance in this process.
Among other information, we can read the manifesto through a neutral network, which I fully support and which I leave here entirely so that you can consult and replicate it whenever you consider it necessary.
Manifesto for a Neutral Network
Citizens and Internet user companies adhering to this text declare:
1. That the Internet is a Neutral Network by design, from its creation to its current implementation, in which information flows freely, without any discrimination based on origin, destination, protocol or content.
2. That companies, entrepreneurs and Internet users have been able to create services and products in that Neutral Network without the need for prior authorizations or agreements, giving rise to a practically non-existent barrier to entry that has allowed the explosion of creativity, innovation and services which defines the state of the current network.
3. That all Internet users, entrepreneurs and companies have been able to define and offer their services on an equal footing, taking the concept of free competition to extremes never known before.
4. That the Internet is the most important vehicle for free expression, free information and social development that citizens and companies have. Its nature must not be put at risk under any circumstances.
5. That to enable this Neutral Network, operators must transport data packages in a neutral manner without becoming traffic customs and without favoring or harming some content over others.
6. That the management of traffic in specific and exceptional situations of saturation of the networks must be undertaken in a transparent manner, according to homogeneous criteria of public interest and not discriminatory or commercial.
7. That such exceptional traffic restriction by operators cannot become a sustained alternative to investment in networks
8. That said Neutral Network is threatened by operators interested in reaching commercial agreements that privilege or degrade the content according to their commercial relationship with the operator.
9. That some market operators want to redefine the Neutral Network to manage it according to their interests, and that claim should be avoided; the definition of the fundamental rules of Internet operation should be based on the interest of those who use it, not those who provide it
10. That the response to this threat to the network cannot be inaction: doing nothing is equivalent to allowing private interests to de facto carry out practices that affect the fundamental freedoms of citizens and the ability of companies to compete in equal conditions.
11. That it is necessary and urgent to urge the Government to clearly and unequivocally protect the Neutral Network, in order to protect the value of the Internet in the face of the development of a more productive, modern, efficient economy, free from undue interference and interference. . For this, it is necessary that any motion that is approved inextricably binds the definition of Neutral Network in the content of the future law being promoted, and does not condition its application to issues that have little to do with it.
The Neutral Network is a clear and defined concept in the academic sphere, where it does not provoke debate: citizens and companies have the right that the data traffic received or generated is not manipulated, misrepresented, impeded, diverted, prioritized or delayed depending on the type of content, the protocol or application used, the origin or destination of the communication or any other consideration beyond their own control. This traffic will be treated as a private communication and exclusively under judicial order it can be spied on, traced, archived or analyzed in its content, as private correspondence that it really is.
Europe, and Spain in particular, are in the midst of an economic crisis so important that it forces a radical change in its production model, and a better use of the creativity of its citizens. The Neutral Network is crucial in preserving an ecosystem that favors competition and innovation for the creation of the countless products and services that remain to be invented and discovered. The ability to network, collaboratively, and in connected markets, affect all sectors and all companies in our country, which makes the Internet a key current and future factor in our economic and social development, determining in largely the level of competitiveness of the country. Hence our deep concern for the preservation of the Neutral Grid. That is why we urgently urge the Spanish Government to be proactive in the European context and to legislate clearly and unequivocally in this regard.
