Drosselkom: Offline and Online-Protests against ISP Anti-Neutrality
Drosselkom: Offline and Online-Protests against ISP Plans to slow down Internet Connections – and for Net Neutrality: "Imagine a car usually driving 50 km/h, but after driving for 1.000 km it is slowed down to 384 meters per hour – it’s functionality is broken. Making matters even worse, Telekom also openly announced, that internet companies can pay them to be excluded from those customer limits. This is already being done with the music streaming service Spotify: their traffic will not be counted for the customer limit – and Spotify will remain available at full speed even when its competitors are slowed down. The market leader is trying to kill the principle of net neutrality – that all bits are created equal. 'via Blog this'
