Google and Verizon announced Monday that the two corporations have reached an agreement on net neutrality.

NPR’s Eyder Peralta has the story for “All Tech Considered.”

“In a conference call, Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg said the agreement lays out seven principles on how service providers can manage traffic.

The agreement states networks should be transparent about how they manage traffic and that they cannot degrade traffic or provide paid prioritization to any service on the public Internet. The policy does leave room for providers like Verizon to create ‘additional, differentiated online services.'”

Of course, this agreement only applies to wired Internet connections. Wireless connections would be exempt from all rules, except that service providers would have to be transparent about their “network management.”
