Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, May 17, 2013 8:33 PM

The ISPs, cable companies and wireless companies tell us trust them and they will self regulate abide by Net Neutrality and play fair. This and many other events lately prove that a lie.

 

Excerpt:

Internet activists in Germany demand a free and open Internet today, protesting in front of the annual general meeting of major German ISP Deutsche Telekom. They criticize the companies plans to slow down internet connections after a certain amount of traffic has been used. What is worse: the company is violating the principle of net neutrality – internet services can buy their way out of those limits.
