    Could not find any thread about the new internet tax, so in case you don't know:


    Budapest (AFP) - A proposed Hungarian tax on internet usage has sparked new accusations of an anti-democratic crackdown in the EU member as tens of thousands are expected to march against the measure Sunday.Economy Minister Mihaly Varga said Tuesday that the tax -- 150 forints (0.50 euros, $0.61) on each transferred gigabyte of data -- was needed to plug holes in the 2015 budget of one of the EU's most indebted nations.

    It may not go through, its still a proposal and not actually a law. Currently there is an anti-Hungary bias in western media(won't go into it since it will violate politics rule). So the Western Media is going to hype up anything that makes Hungary bad. Up until last year 6 or 7 states in America had a tax on internet access yet it wasn't deemed as an anti-democratic law. Yet when it comes to just a PROPOSAL in Hungary, the first paragraph includes.

    That is so ludicrous! If the law (tax, policy, whatever you want to call it) goes through, that's going to be one fucked up thing!

    That's like an extra €5 to your Internet bill per 10GB of data used. Crazy!
