Google is disputing a New York Times report  that the company is close to a private deal with Verizon in which Google could pay Verizon to ensure that its content received priority in reaching web users.
“The New York Times is quite simply wrong,” Google spokesperson Mistique Cano told TPM in an email. “We have not had any conversations with Verizon about paying for carriage of Google or YouTube traffic.”
“We remain as committed as we always have been to an open Internet,” she said.
Google Public Policy’s twitter feed had tweeted  a similar statement earlier in the day. “@NYTimes is wrong. We’ve not had any convos with VZN about paying for carriage of our traffic. We remain committed to an open internet.”
