Norwegian teclo to broadcaster: pay up or we throttle your packets

Eirikso sez, "In June 2006 NextGenTel, one of the biggest broadband providers in Norway decided to deliberately limit the bandwidth from the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK). The CEO of NextGenTel, Morten Ågnes tells the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten that they will give priority to the content providers that pay for better bandwidth."


(Thanks, Eirik!)

Update: Glyn sez, "It seems like the customers won this battle. Due to
bad publicity and reactions from customers NextGenTel
have removed the limit and NRK is now back on full
speed in their network. What should I say? Thanks to
the people contacting NextGenTel and to the blogs and
media that understand how this was a serious violation
to network neutrality."
