    Google and Verizon DID do a deal for new internet 'first class' superhighway Read mo

    Google and Verizon insist 'net neutrality' not affected by internet superhighway plans | Mail Online

    Technology giants Google and Verizon have today paved the way for a future 'two-tier' internet in which companies can pay extra to make sure their services get through.

    In a joint statement the two firms called for a new, premium connection which would let internet service providers, such as Virgin, charge more for certain services over faster, higher-quality lines.

    But critics have accused Google and Verizon of plotting to carve up the internet to suit big, established firms like themselves.

    So, it's NOT 'ending net-neutrality' like the 'conspiracy theorists' were claiming... they are just creating a 'two-tier' internet where mainstream voices get heard louder then the blogs... oh and for faster 3d gaming connections, cause those bandwidth hog gamers aren't paying a premium (or enough of one).

    I knew Google was untrustworthy, despite the happy face they put on. This proves it.

    Actually its exactly what its setting the stage for. The whole point of net neutrality is that "blogs" are just as easy and accessible as "mainstream" things like CNN or whatever else my service provide deems is "important" for me.

    Most "3d gamers" who are hogging large amounts of bandwidth already are paying a premium for it as they pay for higher speed plans as is. If you buy a low tier plan you don't magically get 5x that much bandwidth because you're playing a 3d game.

    I hope the ISP's start refunding all our tax dollars we have spent helping build their product infrastructure base....

    That was Microsoft's plan too, except without the waiting part.

    I anticipate (and hope for) a federal lawsuit.

    Sounds like the internet is becoming like the cable system. Instead of getting better and cheaper, it will be mired down in fees, taxes, and other charges that make it cost prohibitive.
