In the United States condemned the idea of ​​Google on the two-tier Internet

    About a hundred people staged a rally near the California headquarters of Google, protesting the bills being discussed that could violate the principle of network neutrality.

    Thus, although access to the network via a dedicated line will remain free, providers will be able to vary prices for content received, for example, through a wireless or P2P connection.

    According to the rules that Google and telecommunications giant Verizon are proposing to introduce, Internet service providers will be exempt from the principle of network neutrality for certain types of network traffic.

    Large Internet providers such as AT&T and Comcast Corp. are on the side of changes in the regulations. Supporters of neutrality are many of the largest Internet companies, including eBay, Facebook and Skype.
