EUROPEAN ISPs GANG TOGETHER

By CBR Staff Writer

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in Europe are joining forces to form an association in an attempt to represent themselves more effectively in the battles over internet regulation and taxation. National bodies representing ISPs in six countries, the UK, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands are this week signing a memorandum of understanding to form a body called EuroISPA. The fledgling group has already penciled in a meeting with representatives from the European Commission next month to discuss current issues. However not all the major players have signed up apparently. Demon Internet, one of the UK’s largest ISPs has held back from joining for instance. The group plans to have a rolling presidency, much like the EU and a permanent general secretary will be appointed to work with a governing council, comprising representatives from each state.
