States push for Lifeline protections in Verizon/TracFone deal [telecom]

by Monica Alleven

The attorneys general from 16 states and the District of Columbia sent a letter to the FCC urging the agency to request additional information from Verizon about its planned TracFone Wireless acquisition.

Verizon announced last fall that it plans to acquire TracFone from Mexico-based América Móvil in a deal worth up to $6.9 billion. TracFone is an MVNO using the network of Verizon and others but most of its traffic is on Verizon's LTE network.
