Verizon’s Fee Update: FCC Now Involved

This article was written by in Consumer. Add a comment.

This sounded fishy to me, and apparently the Federal Communications Commission doesn’t like the sound of it either. The FCC is sending letters of inquiry questioning Verizon’s tactics, as well as those of BellSouth, who pulled a similar switch.
