Verizon Sued By Cabelvision for Misleading Advertising

Long Island-based Cablevision is suing Verizon over one of their recent ads that claimed that an FCC study reported that Cablevision’s Internet Service was not as fast as the companyhad claimed. Cablevision is asserting that the ad, which appears on TV, radio and online, failed to acknowledge a more recent study by the FCC which confirms that the network performs as they say it does.

Cablevision is calling for an injunction on any future ads by Verizon regarding Cablevision’s performance. However according to the AP, Verizon is still standing behind its campaign, alleging that the information is true and consumers deserve to know.
