For a few months now, Verizon has been airing ads in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area blasting the FCC's wishy washy stance on high speed internet service. The gist of the ad describes how Verizon has spent millions of dollars in R&D to develop high speed fiber-optic networks and then gets mixed signals from the FCC on broadband policy. The ad goes on to implore the FCC commissioners to take a more firm stance on broadband policy. One can only assume they are refering to the recent gushing by the commission over proposed BPL technology. Looks like we're not the only ones getting shafted by Washington.
