Verizon illegally denied Charter access to utility poles, complaint says

Charter fined for slow Internet rollout but says Verizon delayed construction.

By Jon Brodkin

Charter Communications has filed a complaint against Verizon, saying
the telco violated New York state's public service law and regulations
by denying access to utility poles.

Charter is required to extend its network in New York state to 145,000
homes and businesses by May 2020 under a condition imposed on its
purchase of Time Warner Cable, and it was supposed to complete the
first 36,250 locations by May of this year. Charter last week was
fined by New York regulators for failing to complete the first wave of
construction on time, but it largely blamed its failure on Verizon in
a complaint filed on Saturday with the New York Public Service
Commission.
