"Under the terms of today’s settlement, Verizon Wireless will make a voluntary payment to the Treasury in the amount of $1.25 million, and has committed to notifying the application store operator that it no longer objects to the availability of the tethering applications to C-Block network customers in the operator’s online market."
AT&T, Verizon and QualCom use this band.
AT&T wasn't fined for blocking access to tethering software and Qualcomm isn't a carrier.
And I believe that the "C Block" only pertains to the 4G/LTE that they bid on and not their existing frequencies.
Why's it the govt gets to keep the fine when we the public have been the ones harmed? Shouldn't we who were harmed benefit from the settlement?
To answer your question.. "Yes, you'll benefit. Verizon will promise never to do it again."
"allow customers to freely use the
devices and applications of their choosing."
I like the "devices" being specified in the pdf document.
I have hated waiting months and months for Verizon to release android operating system updates.
One should be able to buy a device from a phone manufacturer and use it on any carrier one chooses.
I plan my next phone to be a Nexus purchased directly from Google where I can get updates directly from Google. It will be nice to be able to buy such a phone that can work on all networks, but verizon keeps changing things - most recently Verizon will be changing the LTE frequency bands. So, my next phone might end up being on T-Mobile or AT&T.
