Does everyone know that if the time warner verizon merger goes throught our bundle packages and cable bills will most likely double in the village. Yes fios will be gone and time warner will have a monopoly in our area worse then they already do. Have you seen verizon putting up new lines by the weed library and in the surrounding areas? What do you think they are doing? Be ready and thank all the townships around the village and town for signing contracts with time warner to be the only cable carrier. Between the gas monopoly and now the cable one we are screwed in our community.

It is for wireless service only...nothing to do with cable. Also there is no fios in this area. Get your facts straight before you lip off.
Yup

Time Warner is not merging with Verizon. It is asking to buy unused wireless bandwidth from them. As Stan said, get your facts straight.

No VERIZON is NOT putting up new lines by the WEAD library...that's SLIC and they've been running network cables from St. Lawrence County to Franklin for 4 months now. You really need to get your facts straight. Don't believe me, drive by and check tne name on the trucks = SLIC.
Yup

I got it backward. The facts are: Verizon will pay $3.6 billion to Comcast, Time Warner and Bright House Networks to use cellphone airwaves that the cable giants own but do not use.
Yup

Might not be putting up new lines but they are merging and it will raise the bills. Have a nice day and thanks for believing in me.

That's the site I cut and pasted from. Reread it-it's not a merger. Other sites verify it's the purchase of available bandwidth, not a merger.
