Deutsche Telekom plans over-the-top partner push

Deutsche Telekom plans over-the-top partner push, building on existing deals with Spotify and Evernote — Tech News and Analysis: "Such partnerships would definitely threaten to raise the net neutrality alarm if the relevant traffic received preferential treatment on DT’s network. Company spokesman Andreas Leigers insisted to me on Thursday that there wouldn’t be any traffic prioritization, but he did leave open the possibility of these services’ traffic not counting towards the customer’s usage cap. “It depends on the respective partnership,” he said.

This is already what happens with Spotify on DT’s network, for example, and there’s a strong argument for calling this a net neutrality violation." 'via Blog this'
