Proposals to limit competition with existing cable companies have sparked a backlash.
A noon protest is planned for Thursday outside Verizon headquarters Downtown.
The telecommunications giant has cut a deal with Time-Warner and Comcast which opponents say will limit competition and potentially raise rates.
Political and union leaders are attacking the deal now before federal regulators, claiming it's a monopolistic situation.
During a call-in last night, they told callers Washington should back away and let competition take its course.
