“The net neutrality rules constrain the activities of broadband providers, and could be restricting their ability to develop new services and manage their networks,” says the report.

 Addressing the issue of whether the big tech companies should pay network providers for carrying their traffic, The Ofcom report says it hasn’t “yet seen sufficient evidence that this is needed and believe there is sufficient flexibility provided for internet service providers in our other proposals.” 

After it has gathered the responses to the report, Ofcom will issue revised guidance in H2 2023.
