Google, ISP talks home in on nondiscriminiation rule

Internet companies such as Google and Skype support a nondiscrimination rule. They want to prevent AT&T and Verizon from charging them to move content, applications, and services over their lines.   

The talks drew top representation from broadband and Internet companies, including Google’s Richard Whitt, AT&T’s James Cicconi, Verizon’s Tom Tauke, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association’s Kyle McSlarrow, Skype’s Christopher Libertelli and the Open Internet Coalition’s (OIC) Markham Erickson.

The FCC's Edward Lazarus, Paul de Sa and Zachary Katz attended.
