Stop Verizon's Shenanigans


Watch Free Press Policy Adviser Joel Kelsey Testify in Front of Congress Against the Verizon Deal

Verizon has struck a sweetheart deal with a cartel of cable companies — including Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications — in which they've agreed to stop competing against one another.1 The new plan? To gouge consumers and divvy up the spoils of the broadband market.

Whether you use a mobile phone or a desktop computer to access the Internet, this deal is bad news. We need online communications to be affordable and open to all.

Take action to urge Congress to stand up for broadband competition, and to reject this deal outright.

Sign the Petition

Dear Member of Congress,

Verizon's proposed deal with Comcast, Time Warner Cable and other cable companies would destroy competition in the broadband market and stick Americans with higher bills.

This transaction will have a dramatic impact on the affordability and accessibility of online communications. Please reject this deal, and urge the Federal Communications Commission and the Justice Department to do the same.
