Giant telecom companies are running roughshod over all New Yorkers. We are seeking grassroots support for a multi-pronged strategy to:
(1) Help win the longest current strike in America (1800 IBEW Local 3 Members vs. Charter Spectrum);
(2) Thwart efforts by the company to undermine the existence of 70 New York PEG cable stations, which provide public, educational and government community programming, and "I-Net's" which are institutional networks connecting critical police and fire services; and
(3) End New York's digital divide
Many rural areas and low income communities in NYC and other large cities and counties are in a dangerous predicament particularly in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. They have no internet access. As a result, the health, well-being, safety, education and work opportunities for millions of children and adults, are increasingly in peril.
To add insult to injury, thousands of complaints have been filed against New York's largest cable provider Charter Spectrum over the past three years for discriminatory practices, price-gouging internet and cable subscribers, and for providing shoddy service.
