Google and Verizon, two leading players in Internet service and content, are nearing an agreement that could allow Verizon to speed some online content to Internet users more quickly if the content’s creators are willing to pay for the privilege.
He was equally circumspect on reports that Google and Verizon have hatched a deal over net neutrality: the principle of ensuring that all web traffic is treated equally."We have been talking to Verizon for a long time about trying to get an agreement on what the definition of what 'net neutrality' is.
"We are trying to find solutions that bridge between the hard core 'net neturality or else' view and the historical telecom view of no such agreement."
The NYT article regarding conversations between Google and Verizon is mistaken. It fundamentally misunderstands our purpose. As we said in our earlier FCC filing, our goal is an Internet policy framework that ensures openness and accountability, and incorporates specific FCC authority, while maintaining investment and innovation. To suggest this is a business arrangement between our companies is entirely incorrect.
where are the small business lobbyists talking to the FCC
