A commissioner with Federal Communication Commission has issued a statement in response to the Google-Verizon joint proposal regarding net neutrality announced earlier today. Commissioner Michael Copps said, "Some will claim this announcement moves the discussion forward. That's one of its many problems. It is time to move a decision forward—a decision to reassert FCC authority over broadband telecommunications, to guarantee an open Internet now and forever, and to put the interests of consumers in front of the interests of giant corporations." Google and Verizon proposed a series of points on how they believe the internet should -- and shouldn't -- be controlled or policed by the government. While both agreed that wireline-based broadband should be left mostly alone, they excluded wireless from their talk of traffic neutrality.
