Communications Daily - August 13, 2021

Verizon’s proposed buy of Tracfone got a major boost Thursday with Public Knowledge, Communications Workers of America and other groups dropping their opposition (see 2108110018). That means most of the groups now say their concerns have been addressed. Verizon filed a letter at the FCC formalizing its commitments. The groups retained the right to object in state proceedings, including before the California Public Utilities Commission. California consumer groups said the federal concessions don't ameliorate their concerns.
