Google has urged the European Commission not to introduce network fees in its consultation on the future of connectivity in Europe, arguing that it could have detrimental effects on the open internet. The company has argued that the fees do not solve any existing problem, public and private investment is already available for next-generation networks and that Europe’s commitment to network neutrality is the foundation of the telecoms ecosystem. The company has raised concerns about the harm such fees could do to consumers, businesses, creators and the digital economy. Several independent experts have also argued against the introduction of such a model.
