Internet & Networking After an epic vote fail in the lower house yesterday (labour accidentally voted against net neutrality lolfail), which was rectified today, The Netherlands has officially become the second country in the world, and the first in Europe, to turn net neutrality into law (okay, technically it needs to pass the senate, but that's more of a formality in our system). A big middle finger to Sarkozy, Cameron, and Obama. Hey Chile, ./fistbump.sh. We're honoured to follow in your footsteps!

Well, if the companies' business models are oppressive or discriminatory, then I have no problem telling them to either close up shop or find a business model which actually serves customers instead of controlling us.


These are companies providing filtering services for their customers (i.e. porn filters), so customers get so called "safe" internet.

That just became illegal.
