Google has asked the Federal Communications Commission to refrain from regulating the informal interconnection agreements that Google and other providers have developed with Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon. In a filing with the FCC, Google wrote that "regardless of what the Commission decides with respect to the service Internet access providers offer their end-user customers -- the Commission should not attempt to classify a 'service that broadband providers make available to 'edge providers.'" Google continued, "Should the Commission classify end-user broadband Internet access as a telecommunications service subject to Title II, that classification alone would enable the Commission to ensure that ISPs' interconnection practices are just and reasonable."
