Of note, Verizon is not allowed to: Block, degrade, or interfere with the ability of end users to download and utilize applications of their choosing on the licensees Block C network, subject to reasonable network management. Wireless service providers subject to this requirement will not be allowed to disable features or functionality in handsets where such action is not related to reasonable network management and protection, or compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. For example, providers may not lock handsets to prevent their transfer from one system to another. Block Wi-Fi access, MP3 playback ringtone capability, or other services that compete with wireless service providers own offerings. Exclude applications or devices solely on the basis that such applications or devices would unreasonably increase bandwidth demands. Impose any additional discriminatory charges (one-time or recurring) or conditions on customers who seek to use devices or applications outside of those provided by the licensee. Deny access to a customers device solely because that device makes use of other wireless spectrum bands, such as cellular or PCS spectrum.
