Criticism Intensifies Against Google-Verizon Net Neutrality Plan

Google (GOOG) and Verizon’s (VZ) net neutrality proposal which would allow broadband carriers to create a two-tiered Internet, continues to attract more and more criticism. Jeff Jarvis, author of “What Would Google Do?” and self-professed Google fanboy, isn’t too pleased with Google’s proposal. Writing on his blog, Jarvis says he is “baffled” why the search giant would put its stamp of approval on this net neutrality plan. The biggest problem for Jarvis is that the plan frees two major things from net neutrality regulation: “wireless and anything new.”

“[The] internet may chug along giving us YouTube videos of flaming cats,” Jarvis writes. “But you want to get that while you’re out of your house? Well, that’s the non-net [the private Internet]. “- PCWorld
