Google-Verizon should prompt FCC to demand Net Neutrality

The most serious issue is wireless. Smartphones are beginning to replace computers across the nation. These companies have agreed that wireless, too, should be an oversight-free zone, which could divide the Internet up into pieces based on how a consumer connects. The template they’ve proposed helps these companies’ business plans. But it would weaken competition in the wireless markets and place a single access provider in charge of the plans of any wireless entrepreneur.

Susan Crawford and Lawrence Lessig tell the FCC to denounce the Googe-Verizon pact, and explain why the biggest loser is wireless — under their plan, there would be no Net Neutrality at all. No such thing as an open wireless Interent.
