So for those not so aware Net Neutrality is “the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favouring or blocking particular products or websites.” Basically it means every internet site or service gets the same priority and is the same cost to access.
Anywho, Three with their ‘Go Binge’ (and Vodafone with their new VOXI plans) offer access to some sites such as Netflix, Facebook etc without eating into your data, and particularly with Vodafone, any site that falls into certain broad categories can currently ask them to be added:
Chat and Communicate
Now Monzo doesn’t really fit anywhere here at the moment, but with more of this happening wouldn’t it be good if at some point in the future Monzo could be included on these whitelists, I think It would be a good step to get ahead of other banks and lets be honest checking your bank balance can be fairly crucial.
What I’m saying is that at some point in the future with this becoming more of a thing, If the option arises or they happen to be discussing things with mobile networks that they could and should be part of these unbilled categories as an essential part of modern life.
Obviously at the moment, the current account is #1 priority and obviously its a kick in the teeth to net neutrality.
Update: EE are up to it too with free apple music and apple music data
