French Telecom Regulator To Investigate AT&T And Verizon

France’s Conseil d’Etat has ruled that ARCEP has the power to investigate the dealings between the two carriers and bandwidth providers. The major issue involved here is net neutrality. French regulators want to make sure that relationships are running smoothly between ISPs such as AT&T and Verizon and their Internet backbone providers. In the past, certain ISPs have been suspected of throttling Internet traffic. Such ISPs have also been singled out for charging extra money to backbone providers to carry bandwith-heavy content to Internet users.

Now it’ll be interesting to see what ARCEP digs up.
