Aug. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Darrell West, vice president of governance studies at the Brookings Institution, talks with Bloomberg's Mark Crumpton and Julie Hyman about a joint policy proposal by Verizon Communications Inc. and Google Inc. for how Internet traffic should be handled after participating in talks with U.S. officials on Web policy that yielded no results. The “compromise proposal” restricts Internet-service providers from selectively slowing Web content that travels over their wires, but wouldn’t apply such limits to Internet use on mobile phones, according to a blog post by the companies today.
