Internet & Networking You know all that talk about net neutrality in the US? How for instance Verizon and Google want net neutrality to apply only to something they call the 'wired' internet, which is apparently somehow different from the 'mobile' internet? Well, while you Americans are only talking about it, us Dutch are once again way ahead of the curve: the largest of the three main carriers has announced its intention to start charging extra for services like VoIP, instant messaging, Facebook, and so on, with the other two carriers contemplating similar moves. The dark future of the web, right here in my glorified swamp.

Putting bets on when they go bankrupt. Surely they're not going to get anywhere by essentially restricting internet access.

I'm sure Google, Facebook, the BBC and other large companies with a lot of legal sway involved in this will have something to say about it too.
