Abstract:     
From the vast and on-going network neutrality discussion, this contribution picks five neglected issues, which could affect the terms of the debate. After a brief introduction to the state of play in the EU (1.), it deals with market definition as it relates to the relationship between the ISP on the customer side and the content provider (2.), with the ability of competition law to deal with blocking and discrimination (3.), with the applicability of sector-specific regulation, more specifically the SMP regime found in EU electronic communications law (4.), with the introduction of differentiated Quality of Service (QoS) offerings (5.) and finally, with the internal market dimension of network neutrality (6.).
