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!

I pay for the bits I use, it shouldn't matter where they come from or where they are going.

Unless ofcourse I'm trying to distribute spam/malware and so on.

And that is exactly what deap packet inspection was meant to be able to look for.

Interesting. It might actually be that malware inspection or virus checking is now illegal too. Wouldn't surprise me.

No it isn't.

Atleast the draft I read last included a technical-reason-exception.

As far as I understand it your ISP can still provide the service but it has to be under your control.

Meh, "deep packet inspection" is mostly snakeoil, especially for encrypted traffic. I'm sure there are companies who wants to sell you their awesome DPI products though.
