Subject: Regulating IP Interconnection is harmful for the Internet 
 
Dear 

  
The mission of the Internet Society is to support and promote the 
development of the Internet as a global technical infrastructure, a 
resource to enrich people’s lives, and a force for good in society. We 
have been doing this for 30 years, to ensure the Internet remains open, 
globally connected, secure, and trustworthy. 
  
We are very concerned about revived proposals to regulate IP 
interconnection in the EU. In a post published on our website, we argue 
the reasons why we think this idea will harm the Internet as we know it 
today. A “sender pays” interconnection framework that mandates paid 
peering between networks, interferes with the Internet’s voluntary nature 
by which independent networks are free to manage their connectivity 
arrangements according to local needs. This results in inefficient traffic 
flows, higher costs of data transmission, a more hierarchical and less 
resilient network topology, and lower quality of services for users in the 
country.  
Please read our post 
here: https://www.internetsociety.org/blog/2022/05/old-rules-in-new-
regulations-why-sender-pays-is-a-direct-threat-to-the-internet/ 
  
At the Internet Society we have developed an Internet Impact 
Assessment Toolkit (IIAT), that allows to analyze policy proposals to 
determine if they protect or harm the Internet. We have used it to assess 
similar proposals put forward in South Korea. The technical brief we 
have published is available 
here: https://www.internetsociety.org/resources/doc/2022/internet-
impact-brief-south-koreas-interconnection-rules/   
More information on the IIAT is available 
here: https://www.internetsociety.org/issues/internet-way-of-
networking/ 
  
We would like to have the opportunity to discuss these matters with you, 
at your earliest convenience. 
  
Best regards,
