Netherlands approves neutrality on the Internet

Under the new law, ISPs are required to treat any kind of traffic equally, avoiding thus negative discrimination.

According to The Verge, the Netherlands is one of the first countries in the world, then to Chile, to pass a law of neutrality on the Internet. Under this Act, ISPs can not slow down or block access to certain sites or services, and are forbidden to charge more for access to certain sites, apps and services.

The goal is clear: to prevent an access provider boycott a site, service or app that considers competing.

There are several examples of the lack of neutrality on the Internet. For example, an ISP can allow a client of his who also subscribe to a service for TV, watch TV streaming without limits, since those megabytes do not count toward the monthly limit on your plan. However, watching a TV service already has competition for megabytes per month we are entitled.

Another example is telecommunications companies, which tend not to look favorably applications for voice over IP (VoIP), data that allow us to communicate for free or at very low costs. There are even companies that do not allow the use of these applications.

A concrete example: Comcast allows its customers to make unlimited streaming their own video service Xfinity on consoles Xbox 360, but other data have monthly limit.
