Link.

Money talking?

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

How would this have effected all those ISPs that traffic manage during peak times?

Obviously wont matter now, just out of interest

I think not at all, this is more to do with isp's charging the likes of netflix for traffic, instead of treating it as neutral data.

I think it makes sense for heavy users to pay more. So I would support this EU decision.

net neutrality is nothing to do with user's paying for usage.

Without net neutrality the ISPs might ask for payment from the likes of Netflix to give them higher priority. Netfix would then have to recover these costs from their users.

yes buts that different to what you was implying that broadband isp's charge for usage instead of unmetered.

Netflix already increased their price due to such policies as Comcast started charging them a fee to get uncongested peering.

Seems like a dangerous route. E.g. if TalkTalk told Netflix it wants £1 million a year or TalkTalk customers will see buffering on Netflix streams. Surely just bribery?

agreed, hence the push for these new legislations to make such policies illegal.
