FCC Drops Closed Door Net Neutrality Talks

The FCC confirmed that it has ended a round of discussions with major Internet companies on Net Neutrality regulations. The closed door discussions had drawn criticism for their lack of transparency and public input. Separately, unconfirmed reports indicate that Verizon and Google may be nearing private deal on the same issues of Net Neutrality.

Both Verizon and AT&T issued statements lamenting the end of the talks and expressing a willingness to continue building an industry consensus.
