Russian government is not going to provide ISP with authority to cut internet traffic to web-sites

Russian telecommunication companies proposed to cut internet traffic to certain web-sites. It seems they have proposed it on a case when network is overloaded. But which web-sites should receive priority for better bandwidth is not clear. Telecommunication companies have proposed to make “bandwidth priority” a law they develop.

But Russian government “does not discuss the repeal of net neutrality”. The repeal of net neutrality is not provided in chapter “law regulation” of Russian digital agenda. Besides, according to deputy of the chief of governmental administration, it is not necessary to create a separate Info-communication code developing by telecommunication companies.
