Google Refuses to Pay Insane Bell South Fee

After my PLDT purgatory, I'm glad to see Google tell a telco to go fuck itself.

Google refuses to pay Bell South an insane fee: for Bell South users to access Google.

We pay our ISPs so we can access the Internet -- all of it. Any ISP that artificially prefers, hinders, or blocks specific content without paying customers' consent is just offering lousy service.

Don't even think of trying this, PLDT. If my Skype suddenly skips because you don't like VoIP competition, or my non-netGames/Level-Up games suddenly lag because those two publishers are your bitches, you won't hear the end of it.
