Those conversations between Google and Verizon that both companies swore were not taking place were, of course, taking place. They’ve now jointly declared their desire to eliminate any prospects for net neutrality on wireless broadband. 
“Sixth, we both recognize that wireless broadband is different from the traditional wireline world, in part because the mobile marketplace is more competitive and changing rapidly. In recognition of the still-nascent nature of the wireless broadband marketplace, under this proposal we would not now apply most of the wireline principles to wireless, except for the transparency requirement.”
 Read the whole statement.  Smoke and mirrors.

WE. ARE. FUCKED.
