Did you check with the FSF/SFLC whether

The online distribution of GPLed firmware by Verizon is
accompanied by source found at
Verizon also makes source available through the offer of
a physical copy for no more than distribution costs ($10)
listed on the same page.

The manufacturers of the hardware also make source
available at <>, and
offer physical copies for $10 as well.

This satisfies the BusyBox rights holders, who therefore
settled their case against Verizon. It satisfies anyone
who wishes to obtain the GPLed code for the firmware.

It dissatisfies only you, who is looking to believe that
there is someone who is deliberately distributing GPLed
code while not complying with its license. But there is
no one who is doing that.
