It is only your interpretation that this is what happened.
The manufacturer of the routers, Actiontec, made the source
code properly available under the GPL. Verizon's connection
is that they have a website link for downloading firmware.
That link contains the string "actiontec gateway". Without
knowing the details of what Verizon's webserver is doing,
it is difficult to know whether this is a violation of the
GPL. The copyright holders appear to be satisfied with the
sources being available from Actiontec, and they are in the
best position to know.
