Digital Services Interoperability: Intertwining EU telecom law, the DMA, internet devices and Free Software

Although the EU aims to establish better competition on digital markets with the DMA, the regulatory framework for internet access devices, such as routers and modems, remains fragmented. Free Software is impacted in relation to operating systems running in these devices. Volunteers communities over Europe have engaged in initiatives such as Router Freedom and Device Neutrality to monitor these laws. The proper implementation has already revealed challenging due to several hurdles and difficulties.
