judgecorp writes: "The European Commission has opened its second consultation on Net Neutrality after its first round of questioning revealed widespread throttling of VoIP and peer-to-peer services by European service providers. This consultation is worth getting involved in, as it could provide the basic input for future Net Neutrality legislation."
judgecorp writes: "The UN telecoms body, the ITU is busy writing new regulations for international telecoms — and European service providers, through their body ETNO have urged ITU to enshrine a two-tier Internet by defining a right for service providers to charge more for end-to-end quality of service, as opposed to best efforts connection. The two-tier Internet is opposed by Net Neutrality advocates, and has been outlawed in the Netherlands."
