Tolls lifted in Virginia

More than 650,000 Verizon Communications customers in Virginia will have bigger calling areas starting Tuesday. For some, that means they can dial a neighboring county without having to pay a toll, the company announced Monday. The company told regulators it would eliminate toll charges for about 1 million Virginians by early next year. The condition was one of several that were set following the June 2000 merger of Bell Atlantic and GTE, which became Verizon.
