Rotten 3G by Orange in Poland

Over on planet gnome , I read this article about how Orange in Poland downgrades all images over http on it’s network.

Note that the artifacts of the image compression are less visible here than after the jump, as I had to resize the image to make it display properly in WordPress.

This is rotten on so many levels, the most extreme of which is a gross abuse of net neutrality. Data providers are providing just that, a transport for data, and should not be messing with it on its way to my handset.

What would make this even worse, is if they actually charged you for the full quality image.
