Brindisi issues statement on PSC move to revoke Charter Communication’s right to operate in New York

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi of Utica issued the following statement in response to news that the state Public Service Commission began the process of revoking Charter Communications’s right to provide service in New York state. The PSC says the company, doing business as Spectrum Cable in New York, has failed to live up to the terms of its merger two years ago with Time-Warner Cable.

“It’s high time New York cut the cord with Spectrum Cable and provided residents with more competition,” Brindisi said. “Over the past several years, I have heard from literally hundreds of constituents who have called me and signed my online petition, and they are absolutely fed up. They’ve had it with poor customer service, sudden surprise rate hikes they cannot afford and promises that are not being kept by Spectrum.

What is just as bad is that thousands of New Yorkers who are waiting for the broadband access Spectrum keeps advertising it is providing are still stuck with 20th-Century technology. I am pleased that the PSC is taking these serious concerns to heart and is looking out for the hundreds of thousands of Spectrum customers across the state being shortchanged when it comes to cable and Internet service.”

    But what is the replacement? Will it be an improvement?
    How many Charter employees will be left without a job?
    I think that Charter should be forced to complete the install and fined for substandard performance, not entirely eliminated.
