Google and Verizon propose an open internet (but exclude mobile phones)

US network operator Verizon and internet giant Google have published a proposal to deal with issues of "network neutrality" and an "open" internet.

They want to see internet service providers prohibited from any prioritisation or blocking of information or services on the internet (as long as that information/service is legally available).

However, they want mobile internet services exempt from most of these rules, noting the competitive and fast-changing nature of the relatively-young wireless industry.
