- internet providers cannot interfere with the traffic of their users
- internet providers will be very restricted in their use of invasive wiretapping technologies, such as deep packet inspection (DPI)

Bits of Freedom, the Dutch digital rights movement which supported and campaign such law, is of course enthusiastic and is now asking other countries of the EU to adopt similar laws. This is of course a good news for a free and unlocked internet. This is particularly important when in some countries, the access to internet and censoring is established as q regulation to control what people can browse (Iran, China, etc.). So, maybe it is time for other European countries to follow this example, especially for France, where a law was identified in the past year as interfering with Net neutrality.
