C/o vienna hat ein Interview mit mir geführt:
"Der digitale Freiheitskämpfer"
The good news: joining the effort to work for #RouterFreedom has become easier than ever before for individuals and organisations. We've compiled an Activity Package that massively eases understanding the whole topic and contains the #FSFE's experience of working for this freedom since 2013.
Also available: a map monitoring the current state of Router Freedom in all EU member states as well as communication templates
In #Austria, the government has the chance to safeguard Router Freedom from the start. In order to do so, they have to integrate #RouterFreedom directly in the new law instead of delegating this to their national regulating agency RTR. We work together with @epicenter_works to influence the situation to the better:
#Greece and #Germany have been one of the first countries to incorporate the EU's rules into national law. Germany had a chaotic legislative process, giving civil society like the #FSFE only a few days to assess 400+ pages of the new law. Unfortunately the former pioneer of #RouterFreedom in Europe opens Pandora's Box again.
Greece on the other hand makes a step forward! The regulator had a proper consultation and has a favourable position towards Router Freedom:
#RouterFreedom in #Europe keeps us busy! The recent EU guidelines are differently interpreted in national states. #Greece is a positive example while #Germany effectively endangers the freedom users had since 2016. And in #Austria, the government has the historic chance to safeguard these essential user rights now!

Thanks to: Alliance of Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Manufacturers (VTKE), Consumer Protection Union (EKPIZO), Consumer Protection Centre (KEPKA), Homos Digitalis, Open Technologies Alliance (GFOSS), and Sarantoporo.gr - Community Wireless Network for working with the #FSFE on this topic in Greece. This will be crucial for #SoftwareFreedom in Greece and the EU. #nt
