Germany's new government to move forward with net neutrality
Germany's new government to move forward with a mixed digital agenda | Internet Policy Review: "“Granting net neutrality will be one of the aims of the government,” according to the text. [BNetZ] shall be empowered technically and with staff to check on violations and deep packet inspection shall be legally banned as a tool to allow discriminatory handling of packages. Mobile operators would be obliged to make an offer, even if separated from the basic service, to use VoIP services. Net neutrality activists should like this statement, but certainly will need to wait and see how once in power, the new government will follow-up to them - which certainly is true for everything in this type of document. Some observers have warned that non-neutral traffic handling could occur with the help of back doors." 'via Blog this'
