According to Bloomberg, a rep of the Justice Department’s shared that they have launched an investigation into Verizon’s recent purchasing of spectrum, namely the $3.6 billion deal struck up between them and the coalition of Bright House, Time Warner and Comcast.

That alongside another deal with Cox Communications has them worried that Verizon may soon have too much control over the airwaves. Verizon says they have no received word that an investigation is being launched but we wouldn’t be surprised if Bloomberg’s story holds substance. Ruling the air the way they want may not come so easy.
