I'm not sure I would agree that Google has ever been net neutral.

For instance; through current restrictions, Google does not allow certain non-illegal businesses from buying ad space because they don't like what they sell (you can buy ad space for strippers, but not guns).

This policy combined with Google's overwhelming usage certainly restricts legal business owners from taking advantage of Google's hit rates.


I am glad they made that bid to keep the spectrum open, even if it had massive ulterior motives behind it. Ultimately the consumer should benefit from this move especially if the google cell phone leverages it.

As for being neutral, it appears they are regulating part of an industry that they make money from. They should chair or establish a neutral board who regulates their index.
