Verizon is currently facing claims that it has been overcharging customers for its landline service.
Consumer-advocacy group New Networks Institute, which focuses specifically on benefitting the telephone customer, is considering taking legal action against Verizon, the New York Post reports. The New York-based group claims that the telecommunications provider has been overcharging its landline customers by $1,000 to $1,500. With 2 million Verizon landline customers in New York state, that adds up to billions of dollars.
