This plan's advertised price cost is $10.00 and yet the actual costs to the customer are $32.00, hiding a whopping 220% above this advertised price. Is this 'fair and reasonable'? Is this deceptive advertising? Where are the savings for buying this 'slim package'?
erizon and the NJ Board of Public Utilities (BPU) cut a stealth agreement to raise rates on top of previous rate increases of 440 percent. Moreover, the State undercounted the additional charges and fees over the last two decades.

When Finland and Hungry beat out the United States of America in download speeds and the Republic of Seychelles and Bangladesh beat us in 'upload' speeds, you know something is wrong with broadband in America today.
Republicans are screaming like someone stole the champagne from the RNC refrigerator. Verizon and its fellow broadband providers, like Comcast, are screaming, too. They threaten to sue the FCC... again. But as I wrote here many months ago, such threats ring empty.
