Mobile professionals in the US who have international connections should be aware that Verizon is blocking the IP addresses of a number of British and European ISPs. The company claims they are blocking the ISPs due to a heavy volume of spam but no US customers have been notified. The blockages began on December 22 and are still in effect today. Until Verizon releases the IP addresses a company representative is suggesting that Verizon customers who are expecting critical information from Europe "might want to make a phone call". Beautiful.
