Local officials speak about Verizon FiOS product not in Albany

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Local officials gathered in Albany Wednesday to slam Verizon for not building their FiOS product in the area.

Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan, alongside state senator Neil Breslin and Assemblyman John McDonald said customers are now at the mercy of a Time Warner Cable monopoly.

The group says the failure to build has hurt jobs, consumers and electronic development. They say Verizon is also abandoning its landline network and are demanding the public service commission to take a look at the company.
