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.

Les inscriptions sont ouvertes : Participez au premier sommet de la FSFE du 2 au 4 Septembre au BCC à Berlin, Allemagne

01 July 2016:

Imaginez une Union européenne qui base son infrastructure informatique sur les logiciels libres. Imaginez des États membres qui échangent des informations grâce à des standards ouverts et qui partagent leurs logiciels. Imaginez des municipalités et des conseils municipaux qui bénéficient de logiciels décentralisés et collaboratifs sous licence libre. Imaginez qu'aucun Européen ne soit plus obligé d'utiliser des logiciels non libres.

C'est ce que nous cherchons à atteindre. Et bien que la route semble encore longue, nous savons que nous franchissons une étape majeure aujourd'hui. Pour nous aider à révéler notre plein potentiel, la FSFE propose des collaborations transfrontalières et lance, en 2016, son premier sommet européen. Rejoignez-nous, nous et notre mouvement.

The FSFE has prepared its comments for the draft of the revised guidelines.
