Re: Verizon refusal
LilCo(LIPA) has enough corruption without getting into telecom. It is possible for 3rd party carriers who are already in telecom to wire parts of the NY Metro area which have not been wired yet-- or had infrastructure damaged. These include RCN, Google, Mega path (Covad), muni providers.
No one is beating the drums for LIPA in particular; customers will have to start beating up the politicians to open up the business to COMPETITION, of which there are many different choices in NY state.
In SE Mass, (New Bedford/Fall River) 100 miles away from you, Comcast and Verizon COMPETE(!!) directly and service is good and prices are reasonable. You can lie down and let the turkeys dump all over you or allow it to happen.
