The internet has developed faster than lawmakers have been able to prepare suitable solutions. The current debate about net neutrality is about the principle of neutral data traffic in the internet. Neutral means that all data packets are treated equally, regardless of the sender or recipient, and that prioritisation is not given to create levels of service quality. The demand for legal enshrinement of net neutrality is important to prevent the market shrinking to fewer big players, inhibiting the innovation of new content services, such as streaming. The grand vision of net neutrality is a legal framework for a free and fair internet that favours innovation.
