Verizon refuses to bring FiOS to Brookhaven Town on Long Island! There is no competition to Cablevision for telephone, television and internet/data services. Brookhaven residents pay higher rates to Cablevision than residents that live in towns that have FiOS. The digital divide grows! No FiOS means loss of jobs for the members of the Communications Workers of America and CWA 1108 in Suffolk! We ALL need FiOS in Brookhaven for good jobs and fair prices! That's why we need everyone to sign a petition to Governor Andrew Cuomo, which says:
Dear Governor Cuomo,
We the undersigned urge you to demand that Verizon build FiOS, the state of the art fiber optic network, throughout Brookhaven Town. Tell Verizon CEO, Lowell McAdam that we need good jobs, economic development, and true competition in phone, internet, and TV that a FiOS build can bring to Brookhaven!!"
