PSC Let's face it: in today's world, we all need internet access, not just telephone
service. If you want to start a small business, keep up in school, or look for a
job, you need to be online. But not all internet access is created equal, especially
when your cable company is a monopoly.
FiOS, Verizon's state of the art fiber optic network, breaks your local cable monopoly
on internet, phone and TV. But Verizon is cherry-picking where to build FiOS -- and
most of New York is getting left in the high-speed-internet dust.
Tell New York's Public Service Commission that all New Yorkers need reliable and
affordable service, not a cable company monopoly.
Access to reliable, affordable phone and internet shouldn't be determined by the
luck of where you live, or how wealthy your neighbors are. Access is more crucial
than ever. That's why we need FiOS throughout the State.
We've seen almost 40 years of deregulatory fever. Now, all of us are at the mercy
of giant telecommunications companies. They decide who gets -- and doesn't get --
quality service, while charging steep prices that just keep rising. Outside of the
New York City metro area, internet speeds are akin to those in parts of the Appalachia,
and prices are too high throughout the state.  If Verizon keeps cherry-picking
wealthier areas to build FiOS, and cable keeps its monopoly, that won't change.
Tell the New York's Public Service Commission that all New Yorkers need reliable
and affordable service, not a cable company monopoly.
