FCC Calls off Net Neutrality Negotiations

Friday Aug 6th 2010 by Datamation.com Staff

Verizon and Google deny reports that the two companies are close to making a private deal of their own.

PCWorld: The FCC has announced that it is canceling the next round of negotiations on net neutrality because the discussions have "not generated a robust framework to preserve the openness and freedom of the Internet -- one that drives innovation, investment, free speech, and consumer choice." The move comes shortly after reports surfaced that Verizon and Google had reached a tentative agreement of their own; however, both Verizon and Google now deny those reports.

It's not clear what the FCC's next move will be, and chief of staff Edward Lazarus says "All options remain on the table as we continue to seek broad input on this vital issue."
