Could a Verizon-Google deal shape net neutrality legislation?

Verizon (NYSE:VZ) and Google are reportedly close to announcing a deal on net neutrality, and anything they publicly announce could serve as a template for net neutrality legislation, according to the Washington Post. Neither company has offered any details about a deal since reports emerged last week that one was in the works. According to the Post, however, the deal will not subject wireless networks to net neutrality, but could pave the way for paid, priority access to portions of the Internet that are not public.
