The ubiquity of the internet is underpinned by the concept of ‘technology neutrality’: that regulation should not assume or require the use of certain forms of technology.

This approach supports the uptake of new technology and prevents government from having to constantly redesign regulation to accommodate new technologies as they emerge.
