"Verizon has a moral obligation to start something like this from the fact that their customers have been paying extra for it for years"

Laws are designed to remove morality from business. The only rule of business is to maximize profits. If it takes doing something immoral but legal, businesses will do it, and it is immature to expect any company to do otherwise. Even if it is immoral and only slightly illegal (fines) it may still be in the best interest of the company to make a profit while paying the fines. -- Think of the Microsoft anti-trust cases.
