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.

If charging more for certain kinds of traffic means the carrier doesn't have to raise prices across the board, why is that a bad thing?

You may not like a la carte pricing, but some people do. Please don't take away the freedom and ability of those less wealthy than you to economize.
