Greed is OK if funneled correctly and controlled. Greed is understandable and direct.
In fact, simple greed works better than than altruism, as altruism is often just uncontrolled greed masquerading as goodness.

For example, who would you trust more: the guy who offers to mow your lawn for $20, or the guy who tells you he'll do it because "he just wants to help".
Without knowing either person, you'd trust the $20 guy more. His motivation is obvious.

Keep in mind I said Controlled. Uncontrolled greed is a blight.

If Verizon was some pie-in-the-sky commune, where we were all sharing bandwidth for the greater good and world peace, I'd agree with you.
But they're not. They're a business. And they're advertising falsely.

Currently in California, many "clean air" vehicles get to use the carpool lane ( which I find idiotic). now if the state suddenly started saying "Well, you can only use them between 9 pm and 4 AM", I'd be against that as well.

So if that is true, then you advertise what you're willing to offer to everyone.
