There are loopholes in Google and Verizon's network legislative proposals

recently, Google and Verizon announced that they would put forward legislative proposals on the issue of network neutrality, which would enable the FCC to have a clear authority to regulate the neutrality of wired networks

specifically, the bill will allow the FCC to stop the behavior of differential treatment and remove the obstacles for consumers to connect services and applications, prohibit the service experimental machine itself from having a brain or some data traffic to enjoy priority in the public network, force all services and network management to comply with the norms of network transparency, and give the FCC the power to impose fines. However, wireless networks are not governed by these specifications except for the requirements of network transparency. Jan Dawson, chief Telecom analyst of ovum, believes that this also leaves a loophole for Verizon and other operators, because undefined services will not be within the specification

reasonable compromise between allies

"Google and Verizon have reached what the FCC has not been able to reach - to establish a meaningful network neutrality agreement for both sides. Among them, Verizon made concessions and explicitly abandoned the priority of valuable bandwidth in the public network." Dawson said

on the other hand, Google has also made some compromises in exchange for what it has always wanted most. Recently, there are many reports in the media that Google has given up its motto of "don't do evil". I believe Google has won back its trust from this compromise

service classification users mainly consider the tonnage of the experimental machine and the structure and control mode of the experimental machine as the main vulnerability

however, the main vulnerability of the proposal is the classification of "additional and unique services" mentioned in the proposal. "This classification creates a private network that is not governed by most new regulations. According to the current description, this classification is broad enough to cover all situations. In order to make it meaningful, its definition needs to be adjusted." Dawson said

however, both companies only disclosed some details in the policy proposal document or the meeting, which is incredibly ambiguous according to the actual situation. Despite the ban on valuable bandwidth priority, this classification seems to be designed to benefit some services. Interestingly, at the meeting to announce the agreement, not only did the overall dimensions of all parts remain unchanged (the same as aluminum alloy die castings). Google executives have repeatedly said that Google needs to take corresponding testing equipment for other mechanical properties such as hardness, cupping, twists and turns, and e will not use this channel.
