    Verizon now hopes to benefit from its failure to maintain copper plant throughout New York State by modifying its tariff in violation of the Commission's rules. Verizon plans to install inferior Voice Link service, according to the plan that it disclosed to Wall Street in 2012 (it has not disclosed this plan to the NY regulator).

    The Commission should investigate Verizon's Voice Link behavior in Manhattan as well as on Fire Island and in the Catskills. If, after an audit and investigation, the Commission determines that Verizon has abandoned the Lower East Side, it should hold the appropriate public hearings. If warranted, it should find that Verizon has abandoned its cable franchise on the Lower East Side. It should then eliminate Verizon's cable franchise on the Lower East Side or, in the alternative, allow the City of New York to modify the franchise agreement so as to eliminate Verizon's cable franchise on the Lower East Side.
