In a letter to the NYPSC, Schneiderman explained that reports and public hearings aren't enough. A formal proceeding in front of an administrative judge is required "to fully understand the impact of deregulation on consumers and businesses."
In public hearings convened by the New York Public Service Commission across the state, elected officials and community leaders sent a clear message: Verizon is leaving our communities behind.
A group of New York mayors joined CWA in contract negotiations with Verizon, calling on the company to expand its FiOS service to their cities.

The audit details Verizon's failure to provide FiOS services and questions why deregulation and competition hasn't delivered the investment and quality as promised.

Verizon broke its promise to bring FiOS to NYC by 2014, again failing to deliver promised services.
It's not only rural America where a broadband connection can be hard to find.
The NLRB rejected a motion by CNN, thereby affirming its 2014 decision compensate more than 300 NABET-CWA-represented employees who lost jobs and wages in a phony reorganization.
Verizon "posted another year of consistently high operating and financial performance in 2014." But it plans to abandon its FiOS expansion, anyway.
Cablevision is launching Freewheel, a new metropolitan New York-based Wi-Fi mobile phone service that operates on available Wi-Fi links -- not through a cellular network.
