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.

One might even go so far as to say they shouldn't even have the legal right to wiretap it at all, and shouldn't even know which protocols I'm running.


Interesting question. I wonder if back in the days our "free market" proponents would suggest it's OK to have their letters casually scanned... so that service provider (and trucks owner) can charge accordingly for love, business letters, birthday cards, condolences...
