Verizon has announced it will begin sharing customer data with its AOL Advertising Network, triggering concerns about privacy and customer tracking. AOL will use Verizon's supercookie -- which is difficult to get rid of -- to track users. Devices on a user's Verizon Wireless account, those used to log in to that account, and devices used to connect directly to AOL sites and services or to third-party sites where AOL provides ads will be tracked and may receive ads.

Is this for mobile/cellular only or does it include Fios internet services as well?
