Description
  • Abstract

    Internet interconnection is a central feature of the internet that has been subject to only little formal regulation. However, local public regulation is starting to emerge – be it through disclosure regulations, mandatory peering or licensing terms. Due to the networked nature of the internet, local rules may acquire a global scope. This survey data provides an initial overview about what kind of formal regulation networkers encounter in their professional practice and it provides insights into how this regulation affects internet connectivity.
