Compulsory Routers: what customers have to take care of now

25 July 2016:

Up until now, Internet service providers (ISPs) in Germany determined the router users had to use to connect to the Internet. The user had no say in this decision. This changes on August 1. A new law will allow users choose the device that gets installed in their homes. The FSFE wants to ensure everybody knows about their new rights and is asking users to report cases in which ISPs try to avoid the new regulation.

Imagina una Unión Europea que construye su infraestructura IT sobre Software Libre. Imagina Estados Miembros de la UE que intercambian información en Estándares Abiertos y comparten su software. Imagina municipios y ayuntamientos que se benefician de software descentralizado y colaborativo bajo licencias libres. Imagina que nunca más se obliga a ningún europeo a usar Software no-libre.

Esto es lo que estamos buscando. Y aunque esta visión parece un largo camino a recorrer, sabemos que hoy estamos dando grandes pasos recorriéndolo. Para ayudar a liberar todo nuestro potencial en este camino, la FSFE ofrece colaboración transfronteriza y en 2016 su primera cumbre europea. Únete a nosotros y nuestro movimiento.
