According to the Bangor Daily News, 2,000 Verizon customers have received letters concerning their service. If they want to retain their phone numbers, they will have to switch to a competing wireless service by October 17th.

According to Maine Public Advocate Barry Hobbins, Verizon is pulling of rural service agreements in many states, including Maine. Three years ago, Verizon worked with a Portland based company to improve service in routes 9 and 1 by putting up 13 towers. According to Hobbins, Verizon enticed new customers by offering unlimited data, but now the company is pulling out of many agreements. BDN also cited customers receiving notices in the mail that tell them they’ve been using a significant amount of data while roaming off the Verizon Wireless network. The letters then informed the customers that their service is being terminated. Customers within Verizon’s network will not be affected. Hobbins will be meeting with Maine AG Janet Mills on this situation.
