5G, IoT and Zero Rating Challenges for Net Neutrality

While 5G and the IoT are supposed to bring incredible changes to the way connectivity is provided and utilised, zero rating practices – with particular regard to the sponsoring of social media – are already determining an incredible impact on democracies around the world.

Building on the DCNN 2018 outcome, the Zero Rating Map and on the works developed by DCNN members, this session aims at exploring the impact that the most recent technological and commercial developments are deploying and will deploy on Internet users’ capability to freely access and share innovation and information online and, ultimately, on the rights of every connected individual. Importantly the 2019 DCNN outcome, the #ZeroRating website (available at www.zerorating.info) will be officially presented and discussed.

The session will have the following agenda:
  • Brief introduction to the DCNN and its work
  • Presentations and debate on  the 2019 DCNN outcome: the #ZeroRating website
  • Presentations and debate on 5G and IoT
  • Discussion of next steps and priorities for DCNN
