The telephone/ broadband (wired/wireless) market is essentially a limited duopoly. So there is nothing free about it.
I say that all Verizon customers (wireless and wired) should call and threaten to cancel unless their predatory profiteering is stopped IMMEDIATELY.
Heck for that matter I think there should be a "national call to cancel day" for ALL such service providers, what a shock it would be if millions of subscribers threatened to stop service.
The greedfest among them all seems never ending. No one here is against any company making a decent profit, but the scorched earth policy these companies are engaging in to line the already fat pockets of the executives and shareholders must stop.
