The Federal Communication Commission has opened an investigation into the recent change that Verizon Wireless has made to its early termination fee policy. Verizon doubled the fee for premium devices from $175 to $350. Verizon contends that consumers can pay the full retail price and avoid the ETF. The FCC has sent Verizon a letter seeking more information on why. The FCC is also looking into a $1.99 data charge that is appearing on the bills of its subscribers. The FCC queried, "whether consumers are being charged for minimal, inadvertent use of Verizon's Mobile Web service, and what notice is being provided to those consumers."
