Nokia to shut VoIP and file-sharing

Voice over IP takes on traditional telecoms. Nokia takes on VoIP. The cellphone maker plans a bandwidth shaper tool that lets operators control the use of network resources by bandwidth hungry applications, understand file-sharing and VoIP.

It’s not that Nokia has made a U-turn on VoIP. But such a tool would prioritize the traffic of preferred services, giving the control back to partners content providers, says Nokia. File-sharing could be allowed, but for specific contents or at special occasions. With such a development, mobile operators are anticipating some Net Neutrality debate for cellphones.
