We told you last week that both Google and Verizon were in talks over net neutrality, this caused the FCC to put and end to net neutrality negotiations, now Google and Verizon have detailed their plans for what they are claiming is a open Internet.
It seems that the two companies seem to want to promote a transparent and open wired Internet, although they may have some different plans for wireless Internet which does lead to some concern.
“We both recognise that wireless broadband is different from the traditional wireline world, in part because the mobile marketplace is more competitive and changing rapidly,” said the two companies.
The plans could give wireless providers the ability to choose what content is delivered on their wireless network, you could end up with companies paying large sums of money to get their content delivered on these networks and at the same time some services and content could be blocked.
The plans are quite concerning to say the least, and a number of people have spoken out against the proposed deal, with concerns that certain content would be delivered faster over the network whilst other content slowed down and even blocked.
