A phone company that releases your private data to the government without a warrant, in violation of the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

When this story broke in October 2006 that Verizon was releasing private customer data of U.S. citizens under provisions the "USA Patriot Act}" without warrant, the company vociferously denied it. But in sworn Congressional testimony (reported in October 2007 in the New York Times), Verizon admitted it decided it could violate the Constitution TENS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES since 2005, continued up to the present.

The Bush administration is currently (Decemeber 2007) drafting a law that would protect Verizon, AT&T, and others against prosecution.

A large corporation that grossly overcharges you without warning, only for you to find out on the next monthly bill. When you try to call to fix it you are, of course, forwarded to "John in customer service" who is really Akhmed in India.
*with heavy Indian accent* "Hello, this is John from Verizon customer service taking your call. How may I help you?"

American telecom service provider known primarily for getting only two things right: its network and its money. Best choice for those who have money to blow and often desperately 'need' to access Facebook in the boonies
Damn it, my daughter blew through 40 GB of data with our Verizon service, she knows good and damn well that shit costs extra!

After the great telecom merger of 2005/2006, to combat the voice over ip menace brought forth by the cable companies, one company made up of parts from Southwestern Bell, Bell South, and AT&T emerged controlling 85% of all telephone lines in the USA. This leaves only 2 telephone companies in america, Verizon, and NOT Verizon. The name was chosen for simplicity sake, as now everybody knows what company your talking about.
I just upgraded my DSL package.
Oh? Whos your provider.
South western.... no they changed their name to AT&T... and bought Bell... I forget?
Oh, you mean NOT Verizon. Ya i saw that package, looks good.
