Submission + - Democrats pan Google-Verizon net neutrality deal (

GovTechGuy writes: Four Democrats wrote to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) urging them to write strict net neutrality rules and reject the framework put forward by Google and Verizon. The lawmakers, which include Rep. Anna Eshoo who represents the district containing Google HQ, said the Google-Verizon proposal increases the pressure on the FCC to come up with actual net neutrality rules and characterize the deal as harmful to consumers and beneficial for the corporations. In particular, the letter took issue with two pieces of the Verizon-Google proposal: exemptions for managed services and wireless services from strict net-neutrality rules.
