I would actually hope this happens. If it does, all Verizon customers should take advantage of this material adverse increase in price to get out of their contract immediately.
Since I just started service on Verizon last week (got a new Droid) this would be perfect. I'd cancel the contract with no BS ETF fee, and either port the number over to some other service where I could use the Droid (prepaid maybe?) or immediately sign another 2 year contract with Verizon for another phone subsidy (allowing me to eBay one of the phones for a profit).
I was initially opposed to the idea of them raising fees... But now, on second thought, go ahead Verizon-- make my day. I could use an excuse to get out of a new 2 year contract with you with no ETF, socking you for a loss of the phone subsidy you provided... --
To all liberals: I am NOT one of your parents, so get the heck out of my wallet. It's time for you to grow up and take some personal responsibility for taking care of yourselves, which means not relying on the government to give it all to you.
