DOJ rules that Verizon, cable can't market services in FiOS markets

Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and its cable partners won't be able to market their cable and wireless service wares in markets where the telco currently offers FiOS, the Department of Justice ruled on Thursday in approving its wireless spectrum deals with Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC), Cox Communications and Bright House Networks. FierceCable reports that while the spectrum deals still have to get FCC approval, agency chairman Julius Genachowski said he is circulating a draft order to his colleagues, and he urged them to approve it.
