Internet & Networking Because OSNews is technically a site from the US, and because the technology industry is decidedly a US-centric industry, we often talk about US politics having adverse effects on technology - or, the other way around. That's why I've been detailing the political movements here in The Netherlands with regards to net neutrality. After a lot of positive news, I've now got some bad news - bad news that involves the largest political party trying to block net neutrality - because one of its members of parliament, Afke Schaart, is a former KPN employee. And yes, KPN is the carrier that first announced it was going to block and throttle traffic.

I think what you are doing is probably the best and only method for attempting change. The more attention that is drawn to these relationships, and the more the subtle manipulative tactics of large corporations are exposed to the public is the only hope for gaining a decent counter movement.

However assuming they get their way like always have before, is this something that can be manipulated by using an encrypted proxy service?
