Forget fast lanes. The real threat for net-neutrality is zero-rated content — Tech News and Analysis: "Mobile internet connectivity is different from fixed. Firstly, it requires the use of spectrum, which is a scarce public resource. It is one thing if telcos zero-rate their IPTV app over their cables, but quite another when they use a licensed, scarce public resource to foreclose the communication, media and cloud storage markets.
Secondly, contrary to fixed-lines, internet over smartphones and tablets comes with very restrictive volume caps in most markets. Moreover, in protected markets like the U.S. and Germany where incumbent telcos face no challengers, the gigabyte price of open internet access is prohibitively expensive. " 'via Blog this'
