The Federal Communications Commission today moved to toss an appeal filed by Verizon Wireless regarding the FCC's statutory authority to mandate that wireless network operators provide roaming agreements to competitors. The FCC adopted rules last year that requires the nation's largest wireless network operators (primarily AT&T and Verizon Wireless) to forge voice and data roaming agreements with smaller rivals in regions where the smaller rival doesn't provide its own coverage. The FCC believes this to be the best action for American consumers, who, theoretically, will have more seamless access to voice and mobile broadband services. Verizon believes that the FCC overstepped its authority to make such rulings, and wants the regulations vacated. In today's filing, the FCC argues that Verizon's case is invalid and asks for it to be dismissed.
