Verizon customers launch petition begging carrier to ditch wireless contracts

Verizon petition

Tens of thousands of wireless users have a message for Verizon: Please, ditch wireless contracts. A new Change.org petition started by Mike Beauchamp of Wichita, Kan. is asking Verizon to follow T-Mobile’s footsteps and “end carrier contracts and create an affordable way for consumers to purchase their devices.” Beauchamp says that he’s a long-time Verizon subscriber who doesn’t want to pay early termination fees for changing carriers in the future. The petition, which has so far gathered well over 60,000 signatures, was inspired by Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam’s recent remarks that he’d be happy to dump wireless contracts if customers showed significant interested in contract-free plans.
