Submission + - EU Privacy Rules Enforce Net Neutrality (itworld.com)

jfruh writes: "In a scene familiar to those following the net neutrality debate in the US, a representative of the broadband industry — Cisco, in this case — declared that government intervention in favor of net neutrality removes incentives to invest in high-speed networks. The twist, though, is that the Cisco exec was talking about EU privacy rules. These rules don't explicitly enforce net neutrality, but make it illegal to do the sort of packet inspection that "traffic shaping" requires."
