Google and Verizon divide the web between them

Written by Nick Farell

That is the end of neutrality then
Google and Verizon are close to a deal that would allow Verizon to prioritise Web traffic if the content’s creators pay for it.

The deal could eventually lead to higher charges for Internet users and end net neutrality. The move is a huge win for the US carriers, which have long maintained that they should have the right to provide tiered services.

Google, on the other had was seen as a champion of Net Neutrality and had been arguing that there are risks to the open nature of the Internet from some traffic getting prioritised over others traffic.

The New York Times said that a deal between Google and Verizon could come as soon as next week we would like to link to the site, but it requires a log in. We can only quote it under the fair use rules of the DMCA, it is just they don't get the traffic.

Google is just another cog in the communist machine of monopolization. Any one who doesn't agree clearly doesn't know jack about the people at the top and their political interests in motivation. Greed is the greatest motivation and religion the greatest excuse.

Everything is geared towards keeping smaller competitors out and Google has a track record of acting against it's clients if they aren't big game themselves.

Spot on JAB Creations. I couldn't have said it better myself. Maybe now folks will see that Google is no longer the hip little company for the little guy they once were. Or pretended to be.
