The search engine giant Google is working on new programs that will allow the user’s Internet connection check. The user should be able to find out if the ISP only allows certain services to a limited extent, or possibly even completely blocked. The Senior Policy Director of Google (Roger Whitt) said that the company wants to promote net neutrality. In his view, neutral networks are an essential ingredient for innovation and new applications on the Internet.
This new Google feature is to make the Provider “transparent”. When these new applications are launched, Whitt was in an initial statement still not known. Google wants to give the user a tool in the hand with which he can measure even the quality of its service provider and, eventually, can contact the ISP in the event that he is dissatisfied, or noticed that certain services manipulated or blocked. The Max Planck Institute has released a similar software. The whole thing is a Java applet that will auspüren P2P brakes.
Google is willing to contribute to this new company of the unfair policies of many providers, which often put on Untransparent. A prime example of such cases, the American internet provider Comcast, which became public that he had installed file-sharing applications (such as BitTorrent) a brake. Only at the insistence of the Federal Communications Commission has given up the handbrake and promised more transparency to the users.
Many providers justify the brake for P2P programs often so that the networks would be burdened by too much. P2P companies and users require, however, the equality of all Internet users.
Google’s ambitions are really good! Because you should also get what you pay for. And to slow in such practices, the traffic for certain applications, there may be in addition to the P2P transfers also problems with other services such as video-on-demand and web TV.
