Chancellor Angela Merkel is calling for preferential services for certain providers on the web at her keynote speech at a conference in Berlin on Thursday. […]

Merkel said that some key services for the digital economy would require reliable transmission quality and should therefore be treated differently than other data. […]

"Merkel's comments are catastrophic, she's calling for a two-tier Internet." [note of LQDN: said Social Democratic Party (SPD) MEP Petra Kammerevert]
