Verizon Will Allow Advertising On Its Deck

Verizon subscribers will soon be seeing banner ads when browsing through Verizon's WAP portal, or deck. Early next year the carrier will begin selling ad space on their news, sports, and other Get It Now pages. The advertising will be limited to graphic banners on content pages, even though advertisers would prefer to use video clips that take over the phone's screen. Verizon tested video advertising earlier this year, but subscribers found it too intrusive. Sprint has been selling advertising on its portal for a few months now. Cingular and T-Mobile have not commented on whether they would allow ads on their decks.

What this means...
Is that Verizon is cashing in huge on this. We are going to be charged per kilobyte for the banners, and Verizon is charging companies to advertise. Spectacular
*Sarcasm* Ya, because Mobile Web goe...
I wont allow this to happen
Not gonna happen.. I will personaly call verizon everyday and complain.. and I will complain to everyone. Even better I will complain to whoever is advertising on my phone.
So.. the day I get an ad in my face is the day I make verizon staff miserable.
I pay $15 a month for unlimited web and v-cast.. Its not right to advertise on a service that your paying for.
You must irritate your cable company and internet provider.
This is the only article that mentions it. Makes me wonder...if Sprint really is on the game for ad sponsership, or if it was said by a VZW spokesperson to make them look like they are joining suit.. *shrugs*
I'm gonna do some massive research on this one.
