Google "In the net neutrality vision of the world, broadband providers simply deliver packets as they are paid to do. When it was just a set of online services, Google happened to fall on the side of citizens and used to advocate against broadband companies controlling the pipes. Now that it’s an ISP itself, Google is becoming a net neutrality hypocrite." This is why trusting companies - any company - is simply a bad idea. Companies don't care about you, and those that say they do are liars.

Now that Google is no longer suppporting Network Neutrality, does that mean competitors will be able to throttle Google-related traffic?

Which is kind of my point ;)

I really think Google is just shooting itself in the foot.

Of course not, that is still wrong because it affects *Google's* bottom line.
