CDT’s Comments on the Bermuda Regulatory Authority’s Open Internet Consultation

CDT believes that the Regulatory Authority of Bermuda has crafted a strong set of proposals that are likely to provide adequate safeguards to preserve internet openness. We generally take a positive view of all the proposals in the consultation document and offer more specific recommendations on the policies for zero-rating, traffic management, ISP obligations, and end-users’ right to access and distribute content of their choice. While we do not offer more detailed comments for the Authority’s proposals on ISP regulatory surveys, end-users’ obligations and choice of terminal equipment, or technical and contract monitoring, CDT supports these proposals as general means of ensuring transparency, regulatory compliance, and accountability, which will help maintain the Authority’s effectiveness in implementing its open internet regulations.
