In a letter to the Federal communication commission, Google argued against Verizon’s case, explaining that the proposed changes will curtail industry creativity. Google explains that, the new changes supposed to bring in competition will end up as a boon to the industry.
Off course Google has its own interest, the fact that it already has an existing subsidiary, that install fiber-optic infrastructure for internet distribution and related services. It has its interests to watch for, but the most important fact is that, it wants to be judged right by history.
