Verizon Wants Dereg in VA


Verizon Communications Inc., Virginia's largest provider of local telephone service, asked state regulators on Wednesday to allow the company to remove pricing restrictions because the market is getting more competitive.

In filings with the State Corporation Commission, Verizon Virginia and Verizon South said regulation is not needed amid changing technologies and increased options for wireless, Internet and cable phone services.
