We want FIOS in Brookhaven, NY!

The town of Brookhaven's legislators have been pushing off Verizon from expanding it's FIOS service into Brookhaven for some time now. They have stated that the Fiber-optic wire they are using to run their service could carry an electrical jolt that could be harmful. This statement makes no sense, fiberglass is not a conductive material. Any object with enough amperage (ex. a lightning bolt) could let an electrical surge move along it especially when wet. Cablevision's wiring has a copper center which is much more conductive. What does this all mean? ... We are getting the run around again because Cablevision being the political power house that it is in this area, fear some free capitalistic competition and our politicians that run the town of Brookhaven are more than happy to help! We have seen Cablevision throw their political weight around before, when a large stadium was to be built on the island possibly letting the Olympics and some our favorite sports teams come here. Cablevision having owning the next nearest large stadium threw their financial and political weight around and got that idea shut down!

This petition you will be signing is not to state that you want FIOS in your home but that you simply want Verizon to be aloud to openly and fairly conduct business in Brookhaven. This in turn will force Cablevision to actually care about long Islanders more due to them finally having real and present competition and when they are no longer a monopoly on the island maybe their tight grip of control will weaken!

By Signing this petition you are telling the Brookhaven Legislators that you want Verizon FIOS to be aloud full access to Brookhaven under the threat of possibly not re-voting in the current members of the Town Board of Brookhaven!

    3 weeks ago Comments (Not Required): Never ending cable problems I have! I am unable to get 4 HD channels, ever since I purchased a HDTV in 2006. At the time Cablevision blamed it on the wires in my house. So I had to pay the price to run new cables in my house. It worked OK for a few days.. then it happened again. The same 4 channels didn't come in. It just stays a blank screen (all black). They came back and blamed it on a splitter. Worked fine for 1 day! Again it kept reoccurring after they left or within a few days. Over 10 times they were here about it! Even a supervisor came out to try to fix it! Some days it comes in and most of the times it doesn't! My son's house has Verizon Fios! OMG the quality of the picture is 10 times better! Look up close at a HDTV with "IO' cablevision, It is all 'blocky' looking! On Fios It's so much more high def. And on Fios the menu guides comes up in a snap of the fingers! With cable it take 15 to 30 second for my box to load up the menu. If is frustrating! I want to have a choice! After all this is a America. Shouldn't we have a freedom of choice? , tell me which politician in the town of Brookhaven is making money from this deal with cablevision???
