Net neutrality lives... in Europe, anyway: Top court supports open internet rules, snubs telcos and ISPs

For a fist full of dollars

I find the necessity to apply network traffic discrimination odd, since the monopolistic providers that be, don't seem to have any issue allowing spam calls to waste precious bandwidth hitting my phone.

TMobile for instance, will block the evil spam callers for a fee. Yet, you'd think prioritizing your internet traffic for common use would require a fee too, if it were to "our" greater benefit.

We may have avoided a national internet tax, but it seems the ISP's seem to have their own "little" fiefdoms of laissez faire regulated toll roads.
