Both companies are agreed on the settlement and dropping the case against each other. Also, they’ve decided to work together to solve issues without taking it in court or regulators.

A Microsoft employee said that the company has decided to drop all cases against Google due to change in Legal priorities. The Google also announced that they will release all complaints made against Microsoft. Both the companies agreed to work and compete by Products and Service, not on Legal battles. The Microsoft is not taking any part in the investigation in the case by European commission’s Antitrust case against Google. Also, the Microsoft left the membership of the FairSeach and ICOM, which are the groups which support antitrust actions against Google and their business.

Both the companies were fighting like a child over every issue instead of solving it with mutual concerns. But now, the Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Google CEO Sundar Pichai are on their way to resolving the longtime issue of fighting on small problems. After the Satya Nadella had appointed as CEO, the Microsoft has tightened the bond with Android Operating System environment and launched many apps for the Android users.

Microsoft and Google signed a deal last year in September, in which they decided to end the 20 Patent confliction between the business and drop the lawsuit against each other.

Google Fiber Free Internet Plan Discontinued in Kansas City

Google Fiber Introduces Fibre based Landline service $10 Monthly Google Voice technologyThe Kansas City experienced the launch of Google Fiber four years ago. The Google Fiber is an affordable alternative to Private Broadband networks. The Google, who launched this service is now shutting down the Free Internet service for City residents.

Previously, the Free Internet Access through Google Fiber was available to those, who have paid $300 for installation fee. Once installed, the user was able to use the Internet from Google Fiber for free. The free Internet service had the lower speed than premium users. In Free internet model, the users were getting 5 mbps download speed and 1 Mbps upload speed. Now, the Free Internet Access model has officially stopped by the company.

The reason behind the ending Free internet plan can be the “Sustaining Problems”. The Google has to keep Google Fiber program alive by earning profits from it. That might be the big reason behind ending the Free Internet plan. The company has to pay for the Internet on behalf of the user who is using Free Internet from the project. So, the company is paying money to the carriers, and the users are using the internet for free. That’d make company insolvent.

The Google has two other Internet access plans for Google Fiber users, which cost them $50 per month and $70 per month. These two schemes are best plans from the company, in which users get the uncapped internet speed.
