Netherlands imposed by law on the Net neutrality

The principle of Net Neutrality supporters win. The Congress of Deputies approved an amendment to the Netherlands of the telecommunications law which prevents Internet service providers block or to pay more for the use of certain services. The majority voted for an amendment to the support of the Minister of Economic Affairs, Maxime Verhagen. "This is not to prevent or charge more for access to certain services such as Skype or WhatsApp", told  a ministry spokesman.

The modification of the law must now be approved by the Senate before it can enter into force. The initiative was criticized by operating proactively.
