Verizon told Boston that they were going to be spending about $300 million over 6 years to upgrade the city to FiOS -- a fiber-to-the-home service. But according to Verizon's Francis Shammo, the money really isn't being 'spent'.
Verizon is making drastic changes to my life -- all in the name of saving a few dollars or for management efficiency. Now I have a question for Mr. Lowell McAdam: Is that money worth dismantling the lives of so many families?
Verizon, AT&T and CenturyLink control and have a monopoly over the state-based utility wires. State by state they had an obligation to not only maintain but to upgrade the states' critical infrastructure. They failed.
An ugly pattern has emerged: Phone, cable, broadband, ISP, and wireless companies, their industry associations, not to mention compromised consumer as well as astroturf groups have been on the FCC Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) over the last decade+.

Ryan's got enough problems right now as it is, since he hasn't really gotten anything done in the House this year. Just like John Boehner before him, the Tea Party extremist faction is holding everything hostage and gumming up the works.
These losses had multiple benefits to Verizon. Besides not having to pay most taxes, these massive losses per year were used to claim that the local phone networks are unprofitable and VNY received multiple rate increases, in part, to make up for these losses.
First of all, there are only two names that matter right now. One you know, and one you should.
Usually if we hear people complaining about Verizon, it's because they've just gotten a bill with a number they really don't like. Verizon isn't in the news for high phone bills right now, though -- they're being accused of mistreating their workers.
