Google and Verizon chief executives Eric Schmidt and Ivan Seidenberg got together to write a very special Washington Post op-ed on net neutrality. They used this piece as an opportunity to explain their companies’ joint proposal on related policy framework.
A significant bit to take away from this op-ed is that Schmidt and Seidenberg tried to be humble through it – emphasising that there’s far more to the internet and to net neutrality than just Google and Verizon:
There are hundreds of millions of Internet users in the United States, and no two companies should be so presumptuous as to think they can solve this challenge alone. It is up to policymakers to establish broadband policy for the country. We are eager to work with Congress, the FCC and other interested parties to get this right. We hope that our proposal provides some concrete ideas to move this process forward.
I strongly recommend giving the op-ed a look and also reading our take on the policy proposal. This is one topic that affects us all and certainly something worth staying informed about. [Washington Post]
