The Alliance for Broadband Competition today filed a petition with the Federal Communications Commission requesting that it probe Verizon's proposed acquisition of 122 AWS spectrum licenses from SpectrumCo. The ABC is specifically concerned about the cross-marketing agreements that Verizon has struck with the cable companies involved with the deal. It worries that the deal will result in anti-competitive practices, price increases, reduced consumer choice, and possible discriminatory conduct and control over in-home Wi-Fi equipment. The group wants the FCC to "ask the parties to state whether they will impose any commercial or practical limitations on access to the network, and whether they will make their wireline networks available for use by competing WiFi offload networks on non-discriminatory terms and conditions." Verizon's proposal has met with resistance from a number of companies and organizations. It is currently undergoing federal review.
