What Happened in Your State?

Selected AT&T, Verizon, CenturyLink State Local Service Overcharging

How much was overcharged and could be used to close the Digital Divide, or lower prices, or fiber-to-the-home?

We estimate that Verizon NY Local Service was overcharged an estimated $1.1-$1.6 billion, in just 2019, in just New York (which includes NY City) and this includes overcharges created by the wireless cross-subsidies. (This is the low number.) Nationwide, this equates to Local Service being overcharged in America an estimated $16-$23 billion in just 2019.

Now Multiply This by America.
