Vodafone Germany decides against cable internet throttling

Monday 7 December 2015 | 14:12 CET | News
Vodafone Kabel has decided not to pursue plans to throttle internet speeds for customers with cable internet when using 10 GB for file sharing per day, Onlinekosten.de reports. The provider explained the decision in a statement, saying that the limit on file sharing was only a pilot project to see whether it would be continued or not. The results of the test led the operator to decide not to implement the throttling policy. Vodafone Kabel originally justified the plan by wanting to avoid bandwidth limitations for other users.
