Verizon intends to have the last word on their “winback” marketing tactics. They were recently rebuffed by the FCC and told to stop contacting customers to attempt to win them back after receiving a competitor number porting request. Verizon filed a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, seeking to stay the recent FCC decision. Verizon is using the first amendment right of free speech as the core of their argument, arguing the FCC decision violates this right. Verizon is also arguing the decision violates section 222(b) of the Communications Act of 1996. Look for this to drag out for a while. Get the details from this Light Reading post.
