[PCMag] Group Files FCC Complaint Over Verizon Tethering Tactics

Consumer group Free Press on Monday filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission against Verizon Wireless for allegedly requesting that Google block tethering apps in the Android Market. Verizon has denied any wrongdoing.

According to Free Press, blocking such apps would violate the terms and conditions of Verizon's FCC license for its LTE network. In purchasing spectrum in the 700 MHz band, Verizon must not "deny, limit, or restrict" the ability of customers to use apps or devices of their choosing.

ib4 lock for being "political" or something.

Nice. Love when companies get butt hurt over people actually using the service they payed for. I was just down at Verizon talking with somebody(thinking about a smartphone and data plan*gasp*) and she said it was like $20 extra to tether and you get like 2GB. LOL what? So you have to pay extra just to push the same signal to a laptop? Ugh huh.
