+1Good lord...from sensationalist to plain frikken deceitful with the headlines now. Look at techcentral's proper and factual headline and an intro right to the point:
" Vodacom reveals big VOD plans "
Vodacom will launch its own video-on-demand offering in the new year, and is also in talks with Netflix and other players about offering a platform that integrates with its billing infrastructure.
That's going to require ShowMax and Netflix to donate money to Vodacom's network, according to recent quotes in media...
Net neutrality wouldn't help here, they'd just choke Netflix/Showmax's streams on the peering uplink, that's outside of Net Neutrality's domain.All this noise about OTT highlights the need for net neutrality if you ask me. Consider this.. Vodacom partners with Monochoice to their clientele perhaps offering a converged billing solution where Netflix maybe sees no significant advantage.
What stops Vodacom from degrading their network for use with Netflix who is n their preferred partner(revenue share) ?
