What has Google done wrong?The EU believes that Google has abused its dominant power in ways that are designed to crowd out other businesses. Officials say that since 2011, the company has "imposed illegal restrictions on Android device manufacturers and mobile network operators." These restrictions have ensured that Google has been able to "cement its dominant position in general internet search."Officials say that the search engine has "made payments to certain large manufacturers and mobile network operators." The payments are allegedly intended to ensure that carriers only installed Google Search on their devices. And since users are often satisfied with their default option, Google's products remained the most used across the continent.The other part of the charge relates to how Google ships versions of Android to the manufacturers who put it on their devices. There are, you see, two different flavors of Android, "Android GMS (Google Mobile Services)," and "Android AOSP (Android … [Read more...] about Why does Google owe the EU $5 billion?

When the next generation network comes about the speeds will be faster and I think that the so called "congestion" will be much more manageable. It's funny that everyone on this site raves about verizons network (and I'm not disputing that) but somehow there is data congestion from these data hogs. Now if there were all these data hogs, wouldn't the network suffer from it? Obviously it doesn't so there is no real impact from these data hogs. We cannot be moving backwards with our technology. It's obvious that there isn't a problem and it's all about making more money off data since calling rates have gone down. Adding tiered pricing and data caps will not only hurt the consumer but it will hurt the business of websites believe it or not. From here this will lead to restrictions from going to certain websites without a "package.".
