To maintain an open Internet, a proposal has been revealed by Google and Verizon. This proposal is a policy paper on network neutrality, though; it has no legal footing at all. It has been put forward for consideration by the Congress and the Federal Communications Commission. Two major technology corporations indulged in the network neutrality debate are supporting this network neutrality proposal, irrespective of the legal standing. This support is an indication that the proposal will have an effect on the future of broadband Internet access in the U.S.
Citizen interest group, Public Knowledge opined that the proposal "shouldn't form the basis of legislation in Congress or of rules by the FCC”. Google-Verizon proposal is a call for the FCC to declare that it has the authority over broadband telecommunications to guard the interests of users, shared FCC Commission Michael J. Copps.
The New York Times have been told by Paul Misener, Amazon's Vice President for global public policy, that this proposal has ignored services that could cause harm to consumer Internet access. Google-Verizon proposal is still raising questions and concerns, like how will this private Internet Work.
Verizon along with other broadband providers want private Internet, in order to make available new services like health care monitoring, educational services, gaming and other forms of entertainment. This private service distinguishes itself from the regular Internet in many ways.
