[WSJ] Telecoms Step Up Fight Over Net Neutrality

[...] A group of Europe's biggest telecoms, including Deutsche Telekom AG DTE.XE -0.16% and France's Orange SA, ORA.FR -1.42% is fighting provisions in a proposed European law aimed at enforcing net neutrality, a principle that Internet providers shouldn't discriminate against traffic from particular sources.

[...] Telecom providers say they should be free to set aside part of their infrastructure to sell advanced services, such as high-quality video, from particular technology or content companies. [...]

But tech companies and public-interest groups say such plans could lead to a two-tiered Internet, with some types of content available at top speed, but other content getting slower service if providers are unable to pay up.
