Verizon says they will follow open access rules

After Verizon won the Block C portion in the recent 700MHz wireless spectrum auction by the FCC, Google noticed that Verizon seemed to be ignoring the open access rules with the spectrum and doing things a bit differently than Google believed they should, resulting in Google filing a complaint with the FCC.

Verizon has responded, saying that they “understood the FCC’s rules for using that spectrum…of course we’ll abide by those rules.”

Verizon also responded to Google’s complaint saying that “Google’s filing has no legal basis…It’s really no surprise that despite not winning spectrum, they continue to try to change the rules and further their own business interests through the regulatory process.”
