France Telecom hints tiered data deal with Google

updated 04:45 pm EDT, Thu June 2, 2011

Carrier reacts to surge in web traffic

France Telecom appears to be attempting to team with Google to find new ways to increase profits amid a surge in wireless data traffic. The cellular carrier's chief executive, Stephane Richard, has hinted that the talks are focusing on segmented access to the networks, in what is viewed as a possible reference to tiered pricing structures.

"Larry Page told me that they were open-minded on the subject and ready to start discussions," Richard said, as quoted by Reuters.

France Telecom has yet to make a specific announcement, though the negotiations with Google have raised questions regarding net neutrality. It is unclear if the carrier is speaking of bandwidth tiers, or a more complex management system that charges different rates depending on the type of services that users are attempting to access from mobile devices.
