Galaxy Prime Delayed Over Google-Verizon Dispute w

ShiftyOne (1594705) writes "In case there wasn't already a reason for wanting net neutrality, the latest rumor for the delay of the Galaxy Prime is a dispute between Google and Verizon over whether Google Wallet will be allowed on their new flagship device. Verizon has partnered with Isis to bring its own payment system to their network. Under the current FCC net neutrality rules, mobile broadband providers may not block websites, or applications that compete with their voice and video telephony services, but the rules do not explicitly block discrimination against of services that do not compete in voice and video. Whether this rumor is true or not, it is evident that this type of exclusion by wireless providers should not be tolerated."
