I personally think their want the monopoly back. Oh, the good old times 
without competition :-)

DTAG will not have an open peering policy. But even more dangerous is 
that some of the politicans who try to form a new government in Germany 
think this "German Internet" is a good idea. They also talk about a 
"Schengen Internet". The UK is not member of the club of the Schengen 
countries, so they and their secret service would not be part of this 
new "European internet".

Officially the German government is against the American spying, but 
internally they prepare for something totally different like copying 
more and more traffic from peering points.

If the funny ideas make it into laws this will not be funny anymore.
