Google ‘has made few compromises’ on net neutrality

Google has done well out of its net neutrality deal with Verizon, say analysts, but campaigners are critical.

In the wake of Google’s proposals to enshrine the equal rights of all sorts of online traffic over the internet in law, a number of commentators have taken differing opinions. Google has joined with wireless provider Verizon to suggest that wireless networks should be exempted from the idea that video and text traffic, for instance, should be treated equally on all networks, while also proposing that innovative services are allowed priority; this might include healthcare products, for instance.
Ovum’s chief telecoms analyst Jan Dawson said that “Google and Verizon have done what the Federal Communications Commission has so far failed to do: forge a meaningful compromise on net neutrality between the two sides. Verizon has made real concessions here, notably forgoing paid prioritisation on the public Internet. Google, on the other hand, has made few compromises, getting most of what it always said it wanted.”
