The European Parliament passed a new bill preventing Internet service providers from blocking Internet traffic, but allows service providers to block or restrict traffic when required by law, or “necessary to manage congestion”. And what is or isn’t congestion is decided by the service providers. The bill allows the same service providers to offer different levels of quality for ‘specialized services’. Not even a full day after the bill was passed, Deutsche Telekom decided to exploit this loophole by asking startups to pay a share of their revenue for good Internet service. That’s right startups.
