Internet & Networking Well, this is a pleasant surprise. This weekend, we ran a story about the carrier situation in the The Netherlands. The largest carrier in The Netherlands has announced it's going to charge for services like IM and Skype, while the other two carriers were thinking about following suit. I stated I expected little from our politicians - but boy, turns out I was wrong. Basically the entire lower house - left to right, progressive to conservative - is not happy with the carriers' moves, and are now exploring options to prohibit them from implementing their plans - including the option to embed net neutrality in our telecommunications act. Go go... Politicians?!

bits are bits, if I download 10 ebook PDF's or 1 YouTube video, to the telco this should not matter and they should not distinguish between them.

VoIP might be a problem for them, because they also sell voice services themselfs.

But their are rules for landlines, so probably for mobile it should be the same.
