In December 2013 the UK Council for Child Internet Safety met with ISPs, charities, representatives from government, the BBFC and mobile phone operators to seek ways to reduce the blocking of educational advice for young people.
In January 2014 UKCCIS began constructing a whitelist of the charity-run educational sites for children that had been overblocked.
Net neutrality guidelines were announced in August 2016 by the Body of European Regulators of Electronic Communications.
In May 2015, a leaked Council of the European Union document on the topic of net neutrality suggested users would have to opt-in to blocks, rather than opt out as per the current UK government's plans.

The application was lodged against BT, the largest Internet service provider in the United Kingdom with around six million customers.
