This article reads too positively[edit]

There is absolutely no discussion of notable criticisms this telecom has faced, including recent allegations that Verizon technicians are now subject to dismissal if they attempt to repair copper phone lines. ViperSnake151  Talk  17:46, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

You're welcome to add any controversies that are notable, but everything must be properly sourced. Unsubstantiated negative claims are likely to be removed as vandalism. There's some info in here claiming that the recent Frontier switchover debacle was due in large part because of Verizon not correctly maintaining digital records.[[1]].Timtempleton (talk) 22:59, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
@ViperSnake151: In response to the maintenance tags and your Talk page message: Are there any specific issues that should be brought up in the article? I respectfully disagree with the assertion that there is "absolutely no discussion of notable criticisms" in the article. Within "History" you can see the 2000 and 2016 strikes; refunds and FCC penalties paid in October 2010; Verizon blocking traffic to 4chan; a lawsuit and protests after the company gave landline phone records to the NSA following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks; and the FCC criticizing the company for an E-911 failure in Virginia and Washington, D.C., in 2012.
I also want to note that Verizon responded to the CWA allegations in the Oct. 4, 2016, Ars Technica article about copper lines. Verizon's response is in the Ars Technica article, but not reflected in here on Wikipedia. I think it should be.
If there is anything missing from this Wikipedia entry, I would like to work with the community to ensure that anything added is properly sourced, as @Timtempleton: wrote above, and that it is done with a neutral point of view. I work for Verizon and have a conflict of interest, so I do not edit this article directly and work with Wikipedians on Talk pages to work toward consensus. Thanks so much, VZBob (talk) 19:52, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
@ViperSnake151: Thank you for adding Verizon's response. Being that no other specific issues have been brought up, I would ask for the removal of the {{pov| }} and {{too few opinions| }} maintenance tags. Thanks so much, VZBob (talk) 19:14, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
