Smartphones, tablets, voice assistants…Devices: weak link in open internet access

What if the internet you access depended on your brand of phone? Is your app store transparent? Is your voice assistant compatible with your music? In 2016, Arcep kicked off a series of meetings and workshops with stakeholders: equipment suppliers, developers, content providers… On 15 February 2018, Arcep is publishing its report and calling everyone’s attention to the influence that terminal equipment has on internet openness, and to what actions might be taken.
