The legislative proposal for the transposition of the new EU telecoms directives 2009/136/EC and 2009/140/EC and the BEREC Regulation 1211/2009 was submitted to the Dutch Parliament on 3 November 2010. This has created discussions around some of the choices that the Netherlands has made regarding the implementation of increased end user protection, net neutrality, equal access for disabled persons and number portability. Debate between industry and government is ongoing.
