Verizon customers want to know if their carrier can hear them now. A petition started by Wichita, Kan. resident Mike Beauchamp asking Verizon to follow T-Mobile’s lead in ditching wireless contracts is approaching 100,000 signatures and stood at 97,500 by late Friday afternoon. Beauchamp says that he started the petition because he’s a long-time Verizon subscriber who doesn’t want to pay early termination fees for changing carriers in the future. The petition was prompted 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.
