The Fédération Française de Télécoms (FFT) released a note entitled “For a fair contribution of large bandwidth users to network financing”. Plum, commissioned by Google, has performed an analysis of the French note. The analysis was launched today. Plum Consulting investigates the FFT’s arguments, questions the debatable base of reasoning of the note and concludes “An SPNP model would lead to negative outcomes for both telecom industry and consumers. It adds it would be challenging to implement a SPNP model both on regulatory and legal grounds."
