Why are FM Radio receivers disabled in phones?

Not sure where this would go


I am still an FM listener.  I know people wll chime in regarding using Wi-Fi  or Mobile data to listen to FM stations. There are perfectly good FM receivers in the phones themselves.

And many have argued that it's because Verizon wants to force you to use their data plans up so that you'll spend more. Ok... possible.

So I wanted to ask. Will Verizon give an official reason/statement as to why the FM transmitter/receiver is disabled even though they are a feature and working well within the rest of the world?
