UK's BT Content Connect Criticised Over 'Net Neutrality' [bbc.co.uk]
BT has introduced a controversial service that some say could allow broadband providers to create a "two-tier internet".

Content Connect, as it is known, allows Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that use BT's network to charge content firms for high-speed delivery of video.

It could spell the end of so-called "net neutrality", where all traffic on the net is treated equally.

Definitely a step toward a two-tier internet - and interesting that BT are using the reseller ISPs to implement it.
