But as the FCC ruled it did with private data of users of the competing companies, and that if that is forbidden. So from now on can not continue using this marketing strategy, customer acquisition on competition.

Competition is very useful in deregulated markets, semiregulados or regulated, but the rules should be clear from the outset. In this case was delayed, but arrived.
