The Dutch may become the first in Europe to use Skype and other web-based services on smartphones for no extra charge. On 22 June, the Dutch Parliament passed a law stopping mobile operators from blocking or charging extra for voice calling done via the net. The bill must now pass through the Dutch senate, but its passage is expected to be a formality. The move may prove crucial in Europe’s on-going debate over net neutrality. Net neutrality is controversial around the world, with heated discussions on the subject taking place in the United States, Europe and many other regions.
