Google, Verizon unveil proposal – not agreement – to help FCC with Net Neutrality policy

Google has been working with ISP giant Verizon for the past few months and today unveiled a proposed compromise on how the Federal Communications Commission should frame legislature around the Internet, while preserving Net Neutrality which is really needed.

In a post on Google’s Public Policy blog today, both companies revealed their vision of how content providers and broadband providers can work together in harmony to maintain an open internet policy while also allowing technology to flourish. The proposal isn’t quite the “deal” between the two companies that sent consumer advocacy groups into a tailspin when rumors of an agreement between the two first surfaced last week. From the post:

We believe this policy framework properly empowers consumers and gives the FCC a role carefully tailored for the new world of broadband, while also allowing broadband providers the flexibility to manage their networks and provide new types of online services… As policy makers continue to formulate the rules of the road, we hope that other stakeholders will join with us in providing constructive ideas for an open Internet policy that puts consumers in charge and enhances America’s leadership in the broadband world. We stand ready to work with the Congress, the FCC and all interested parties to do just that.

The proposal offered by the companies contains seven general elements. These are:

  • Make the FCC’s current wire line broadband openness principles fully enforceable at the FCC. Those principles ensure that consumers have access to all legal content on the Internet and can use any application, service or devices of their choosing. The Comcast court decision called the enforcement of those principles into question, the companies said.
  • New enforceable prohibition against discriminatory practices would prohibit wire line broadband providers from discriminating against or prioritizing content, applications or services that cause harm to users or competition. The principle includes a presumption against prioritization of Internet traffic – including paid prioritization.
  • Transparency rules. The proposal creates enforceable transparency rules for both wire line and wireless services which requires broadband providers to give consumers clear, understandable information about the services they offer and their capabilities and to provide app and content providers with the information they need about network management practices.
  • The FCC’s role and authority. The proposal provides for a new enforcement mechanism for the FCC. Specifically, the FCC would enforce these openness policies on a case-by-case basis, using a complaint-driven process and could move swiftly to halt violators, including the authority to impose a penalty of up to $2 million.
  • Allow broadband providers to offer additional, differentiated online services, in addition to the Internet access and video services offered today. The companies note that it’s too soon to predict how these new services will develop, but examples might include health care monitoring, the smart grid, advanced educational services, or new entertainment and gaming options. The proposal includes safeguards to ensure that such online services are distinguishable from traditional broadband Internet access services and are not designed to circumvent the rules.
  • Different rules for wireless – for now. The still-nascent mobile landscape is changing rapidly. Under the proposal, most of the wire line principles would not apply to wireless, except for the transparency requirement. Also, the Government Accountability Office would be required to report to Congress annually on developments in the wireless broadband marketplace.
  • Finally, the proposal supports the reform of the Federal Universal Service Fund, so that it is focused on deploying broadband in areas where it is not now available.

Google To Change Internet Broadband Monopoly Forever

Google To Launch Fiber Optics Broadband By 2011 in Texas

What happens when Google loses the 700 MHz Spectrum to Verizon and AT&T because Verizon and AT&T make a secret pact to join funds in an attempt to beat out Google’s bid?

Do you think that the “FCC” Federal Communications Commission does not know that AT&T, Verizon and Comcast are trying to monopolize and weed out all the competing ISP’s on the market today? The FCC knows that AT&T, Verizon and Comcast overcharge for broadband services while also placing broadband usage and speed limit caps on their clients.

Do you think that President Obama has no idea of what is going on in the ISP world? He said that he will bring change to broadband, and he will.

Do you think that when the FCC turns over all the empty airspace to Google and Google uses it to launch analog fiber 1Gbps upload and 1Gbps download that a new broadband era will be born?

When Google launches its 1Gbps upload and 1Gbps download broadband in Texas around 2011 and it hits all the major cities like Houston, Dallas, Austin, and Fort Worth at prices from $20 per month and up, a new broadband evolution will start and the giant ISP’s will then have to lower prices and uncap their limits just to stay competitive. Google has a larger player backing the broadband kickoff which no one knows about…hmmm, I wonder who that could be?
