Telia – not so netneutral

Telia, not so netneutral
Telia, not so netneutral

I first received an SMS telling me that Telia now provides free surf on social media, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp, Kik and so on, sounds good at first .. but this is how they want you to think, “what a great deal, now my measly 2G surf plan will last longer”. This is where you need to do some more thinking, to achive this they need to listen and filter your traffic to know which traffic is “free” and what traffic to count against your surf plan, let that sink in for a while.

This is not what we want done to the internet, road tolls or rather favoring selected services which skews the landscape of the internet, all internet traffic are created equal, traffic to and from sites and services should not be treated differently.

Now, about a day later I got a promotional mail from them as well, yet again I feel like screaming.

If anyone at Telia marketing department would read this, please go home, sit down and think this one through again, go back to work and pull this campaign back, dig a hole and throw it in, fill the hole and get another job. You are clearly not mentally fit for the job.

GTFO of my social media participation, it is my business what I do online and you should not treat it differently than anything else, your job is and should be to provide DUMB PLUMBING.
