Google and Verizon Deal to Shape Net-Neutrality Law

Google and Verizon Deal to Shape Net-Neutrality Law Verizon Communications Inc. and Google Inc. may soon announce an agreement that the companies hope could be used as a model for legislation aimed at preventing telephone or cable companies from delaying or blocking Internet traffic.

The two companies have been negotiating with each other for months on a compromise on the thorny issue of so-called net neutrality—the principle that Internet providers such as phone or cable companies should not deliberately slow or block Internet sites or services.

A Google spokeswoman declined to comment while a Verizon spokesman said in a statement that the companies have worked on an agreement for 10 months. “We are currently engaged in and committed to the negotiation process led by the FCC” that will allow both sides to “reach a consensus that can maintain an open Internet and the investment and innovation required to sustain it,” he said.

AT&T, Verizon and other broadband providers are fighting the proposal, arguing that the FCC should avoid imposing decades-old telephone rules on new Internet lines. Both the companies and union leaders say that Congress instead should update the law to give the FCC the authority it needs to be the Internet traffic cop.

T-Mobile Has 80% to Get iPhone 4 this Fall in US

T-Mobile Has 80% to Get iPhone 4 this Fall in US

Agreement with AT&T is about to end soon and now seem like other carriers are trying to get iPhone to their stores. Even though they have to talk more advance about the agreement but seem like the chance of iPhnoe to be on T-Mobile is 80% already.

Of course T-Moble already carries iPhone for some European countries already and the process for US market is really important to the company. To support iPhone 4, T-Mobile needs to run the 1,700MHz and 2,100MHz bands for 3G. iPhone 4 supports 2,100MHz band but also need 1,700MHz to make sure that it won’t drop to 2G. One of the remarkable issues is that T-Mobile doesn’t have as wide network as AT&T.

Regardless of the above problem, Apple said that T-Mobile has GSM so it doesn’t have to redesign a new cellular chipset and the absence of a SIM card slot. Nice try for Apple and T-Mobile that we can wait to see more about other carriers who wish to have iPhone to such as Sprint and Verizon.
