Public Knowledge Commends Verizon On Dropping Fee

The following is attributed to Art Brodsky, communications director for Public Knowledge:

"Verizon should be commended for recognizing so quickly the mistake it made in proposing a $2 'convenience fee' for its customers who wanted to pay their bills in the same way in which they make online purchases all the time. Verizon dropped the fee a day after proposing it.

"Now attention can continue to focus on Verizon's campaign to eliminate competition for high-speed Internet access through its joint marketing deal with major cable companies. The Justice Department is right to investigate that arrangement."
