Tit for Tat

Apparently it's Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ)'s turn to complain that cable operators are somehow hindering the telco's ability to sign up new video service customers. (See Verizon Asks FCC for FiOS Help.)

Among its claims, Verizon argues that cable operators are slow to accept disconnect orders and getting an unfair opportunity to retain those subs.

The crux of Verizon's complaint might sound familiar to you. Just last month, Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK), Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE: TWC), and Bright House Networks , went after Verizon over alleged "unlawful retention marketing practices" pertaining to voice service customers. (See MSOs Sue Verizon.)

All we need now is someone to file a complaint about unfair high-speed Internet service retention practices and we'll have ourselves a new legally fueled triple-play.
