The article reports on the court to challenge the rock-bottom rates provided by U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules initiated by Verizon Communication Inc. Filed before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, the appeal was made because the company believes that such rates benefit leased-access programmers. Just like the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), it also sees that the FCC's formula would yield zero leased access avenue across the country.
