The big information this week in the Telecom market is about the Google-Verizon offer that supposedly threatens Net Neutrality. The FCC it is believed is focusing on formalizing rules for the offer and will come up with the same soon. The Obama federal government and the FCC are pushing for online neutrality, but a recently available ruling by the courts in the Comcast – FCC case suggests that the judiciary might not agree to this. Lots of tales about the offers are doing the rounds and like numerous others I would like to think that Google, which includes created its huge lot of money predicated on World wide web Neutrality shall not undermine it yet.
What is Net Neutrality? Net Neutrality means that any packet of data passing over the internet has the same to bandwidth as any other. This means that every website and every “Kind of Data” on the internet gets the same right to bandwidth. Dynamic charging introduced by Mobile Service Providers really helps to improve bandwidth usage and manage traffic.
It has been generally noticed that ISPs expose some or the other form of discrimination to incentivize customers to surf some sites more than others. But till now, there were few instances of the same getting shown in business offers between ISPs and websites. Verizon and Google, it seems have proposed a tiered system that helps discrimination based not online, but datatypes based on the statement by Google CEO.
This means that Verizon should create a system wherein videos are streamed faster when compared with data. This in turn will most encourage higher video based traffic definitely, resulting in better profits for Verizon adding up from what it shall obtain from Google. And so far as Google can be involved, it shall have a more substantial quantity of customers on Youtube due to faster speeds. It also seems that the deal will affect WiFi and mobile surfers surfing the internet on Verizon’s 3.9 G LTE allowed network. Details are scarce though.

Such a move has long been warranted, with the huge explosion in internet traffic and the seemingly insatiable demand for higher bandwidths. It might just come to a point when ISPs will allow consumers to access their pick of websites at the fastest speed and the others much slower. The consumers benefit and so do the ISPs because of their deals with web sites in protecting for safeguarding the websites’ customers.
Small business primary contractors will still benefit from DoD’s accelerated payment policy. It’s the non-small-business contractors that must now wait the entire 30 days for payment (or, whatever contract terms designate). We do not know what precipitated this change although if we were to imagine, the Government understood that expediting obligations to contractors got little if any impact on expediting payments to their small business subcontractors.
And it was costly from a cash management standpoint. Small business subcontracts symbolize only a fraction of prime contractor billings. By expediting billings, contractors received expedited treatment on total billed costs, although expectation was for them to even, in turn, expedite payment to only their small business subcontractors. Also, there is certainly an expectation that primary companies would expedite payments to their small business subcontractors, there was no firm necessity or motivation that they are doing so.
Finally, some contractors found that the expense of modifying their accounting/billing systems to accommodate accelerated payments was very costly. If you’re a small business prime service provider, there is still a program to expedite obligations. If you are unsure whether your small business status is classified properly in the bowels of the federal government billing system, contact your Contracting Officer Representative (COR).
