European Mobile Operator to Charge Extra for VoIP

It looks like all bytes are not considered equal according to TeliaSonera, Europe’s fifth largest communications service. TeliaSonera will soon be charging a surcharge on VoIP services traversing across its network. The surcharge will affect 157 million subscribers across Europe.

Disregarding the net neutrality tenet of no data being more equal than others, the carrier will first introduce the new charges in Spain on its Yoigo network in Q2 2012, before bringing them to the Telia network in Sweden in the following months.
