"Verizon has agreed to fix failing copper networks and boost fiber deployment in New York, two years after state officials began investigating the quality of Verizon landline phone and broadband service.

A settlement with Verizon "will require the company to repair 54 central offices across the state, replace bad cable, defective equipment, faulty back-up batteries, and to take down 64,000 double telephone poles," the Communications Workers of America (CWA) union said last week. "The agreement also includes increased broadband buildout to major apartment buildings in New York City and more than 30,000 homes across the state."

Verizon reached the proposed settlement with the union, staff at the New York State Department of Public Service, and the Public Utility Law Project of New York. The four-party settlement is still subject to approval by the state Public Service Commission (PSC)."

On a related note, Consolidated Communications (formerly Fairpoint, Verizon, Bell Atlantic, etc) seems to be finally doing some construction and rehab work around these parts. Really nice to see double poles go away. I always thought they were tacky looking.

eBay 5 this slot is for sale at $289

I wonder if this will trickle down to other Verizon territories. VA, DC and MD also have horrible plant and facility issues. At one point, they abandoned so much in favor of FiOS, but now that it's not the golden egg that they expected, they need to do something.
