Free ECMWF forecasts soon?

The ECMWF (the "European model") is working on an Open Data policy and plans to offer the "WMO Additional" dataset free of charge. However, this would include only 6-hourly time steps and not the hourly steps which ECMWF actually computes for the first 90 hours.
You can directly give your own opinion on the planned Open Data policy in the following survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/DSstrategy2020
(Questions 3 and 4 specifically ask for whether the 6-hourly time steps are enough.)
