According to the court, the commercial practice violated the equal treatment of traffic. “Restrictions on bandwidth, use of tethering or roaming apply due to the activation of the zero-tariff option, contrary to the regulations on open access to the Internet and this is not compatible with EU law.”
The European Court of Justice evaluated the matter after two German courts sought their opinion, following an investigation by telecom regulator Bundesnetzagentur into both services in 2017. Vodafone Pass offered customers unlimited data for some chat apps, social media, music and video, and StreamOn offered similar services.
In 2018, the regulator ordered operators to extend the offer to the entire European Union, in line with roaming legislation, and make it available to customers under the same conditions. However, the operators argued that this would not be economically feasible and proceeded to file legal challenges, which led to a three-year battle.
Vodafone and Deutsche Telekom have yet to respond to the European Court of Justice ruling.
