Verizon has struck a backroom deal with a cartel of cable companies — including Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications — to stop competing against one another and instead divvy up the spoils of the growing mobile market. And they’re keeping mum on the details of this arrangement.
Whether you use a mobile phone or a desktop to access the Internet, this secret deal is bad news for anyone wanting online communications to be affordable and open to all. The public must know the specifics about these shenanigans — and the FCC should reject this deal.
Tell the FCC to expose Verizon’s backroom shenanigans.
