Verizon Plea to FCC: Sprint Should Build It’s Own Network in Rural Areas

In a recent article published August 20th in Wireless Week;   

Verizon says Sprint needs to buck up and build out its own network in rural areas rather than asking the FCC to consider changing its rules with regards to acceptable roaming rates.

In an ex parte filing with the FCC, Verizon said Sprint was relying on “tired arguments” as part of a campaign to achieve “artificially low roaming so it can avoid building out its own network.”

Verizon is asking the FCC to reject Sprint’s proposals and maintain its current roaming policies, which Verizon argues encourage carriers to expand their own networks.
