A long time. “Content” drives interwebz usage. The content owners really don;t want to play along with that. TBH, we already adhere to it in certain ways (though certain traffic across networks is prioritised – eg streamed TV content vs over the top web content).
As for mobile roaming, the mobile network operators will never support it – it’d be like turkeys voting for christmas!Posted 3 years agoCougarSubscriber
In a blaze of no publicity whatsoever, net neutrality is now EU law.
Blocking and throttling Internet traffic will become illegal in the European Union following a parliamentary vote on Thursday.Members of the European Parliament voted to close loopholes in a proposed law that some believed would have created a two-tier Internet.
The package also abolishes roaming charges for mobile phone use in the EU, provides for more coordination of spectrum use and adds consumer protection such as plain language contracts and greater rights to switch providers or contracts.
It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the UK to approve it.Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

The cynic in me does worry that if we do acknowledge it, we’ll do it half-baked and end up making QoS illegal or something.
And that’s the thin end of the wedge- sure, banning QoS seems reasonable, then Die Another Day, why not, but then they’ll get carried away and criminalise Casino Royale because they don’t think Craig’s a proper Bond, and then where will we be?Posted 3 years ago
