The French National Digital Council (CNNum) has just published 50 measures for "a national and European agenda on responsible digital". The objective is to place digital technology at the service of the ecological and solidarity transition.
In this roadmap on the environment and digital, measure 7 aims to limit the environmental footprint of the deployment of digital networks and infrastructures. The CNNum intends to "encourage packages with limited consumption, including on fixed lines".
The ambition of this measure is thus to put in place "more sober" network and infrastructure design methodologies in order to adapt traffic to the "real needs of the user".
But will such limitations really be accepted by Internet users and Internet service providers? Unlimited access has become commonplace and it seems difficult to turn back the clock...
Last June, the Senate proposed banning unlimited data plans to reduce France's carbon footprint. This measure is also controversial.
