The Wall Street Journal says that Google is not only backing out on net neutrality, the company has even approached major cable and phone companies with proposals to create a fast lane for its own content.

They see it as a chance to root out smaller engines from bandwidth. Like Yahoo! and Ask.com.

They did back out, and then tried to secure a deal to have a fast connection to their site.

Seems like they just switched sides to me. expected really, they are a company and a company is around to make a profit.

Seriously, without neutrality, the internet would be a horrible place.
even though i find yahoo annoying and cluttered, i'd switch to them over google in protest if yahoo committed to full net neutrality support.

Separately, Microsoft Corp. and Yahoo Inc. have withdrawn quietly from a coalition formed two years ago to protect network neutrality. Each company has forged partnerships with the phone and cable companies.
