more than twice the spam issues of their nearest competitor.
List of customers includes Ronnie Scelson, Atriks, Michael Lindsay, Datran, Eddy Marin, evidence-eliminator.com, Kraft, Daniel Lin, and many, many more.
Brief history: Verizon was once in the SBL "Top Ten Worst" list. In early 2005, instituted new anti-spam policies and in two weeks, had zero SBL listings. In 2006, Verizon acquired MCI, and with it, UUNet under the Verizon Business brand. This has returned Verizon to the position of worst spam ISP on the internet. Unfortunately, it looks like Verizon Business has inherited the old MCI policy department, so it is impossible to know when or if Verizon will restore their image. As of July, 2006, Spamhaus remains highly optimistic and currently treats Verizon and Verizon Business as seperate entities.
