[Israel]: The Parliament Approves Net Neutrality (Fixed and Mobile) Law

The Israeli Parliament, the Knesset, voted in favor (17:0) of a new Net Neutrality law. This is the first of 3 votes needed for the law to be approved (here, Hebrew).

The new law (a previous one referred to wireless services only - here) prohibits all licensed ISPs to limit or block any service or application provided over the internet netwrok and limit or block the customer's ability to use end device capabilities.
