NBN Co is trying to introduce a ‘Netflix Tax’! To NBN Co we say: “Don’t you dare erode our Net Neutrality!”

Australians might soon be expected to pay more to watch Netflix and other streaming services if the NBN Co gets its way. In a proposal that raises serious concerns about the potentially irreversible erosion of net neutrality in Australia, NBN Co is asking Australia’s Internet Service Providers whether they would support charging people extra to be able to stream from Netflix, Stan and similar content providers.

Net Neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers (ISPs) must treat all Internet communications equally, and not throttle, restrict, discriminate or charge differently based on user, content, website, platform, application, type of equipment, or method of communication. The failure to enforce such protections will harm competition and innovation and can lead to the loss of free access to information and censorship.

We call on NBN Co to immediately and permanently abandon this proposal.

We further request Paul Fletcher, the Federal Minister for Communication, together with the Australian Communications and Media Authority to legislate and regulate water-tight protections for Net Neutrality in Australia.
