GTE Corp.'s General Telephone of Florida unit denied charges by Home Shopping Network that its poor phone service cost the video shopping pioneer at least $500 million. "The accusations by HSN are erroneous and without merit," the company said in a statement. Clearwater, Fla.-based HSN has filed a $1.5-billion lawsuit against GTE, the nation's largest independent telecommunications company, and its Florida unit, alleging that it lost millions of customer calls and more than $500 million because of alleged poor service and faulty telephone switching equipment installed by GTE.
