Verizon, AT&T and CenturyLink Created the Digital Divide on Purpose: Where’s All the Money?

  • Verizon and AT&T had stopped upgrading the networks to FiOS and U-Verse in 2011, as told to investors.
  • These networks are being built by charging the Local Service category, which has been paying the majority of the construction expenses.
  • If the company was no longer upgrading and maintaining the networks, where did all of this money go, as it is still an expense item?
  • In NY alone we estimate that over $10 billion would have been manipulated over the last decade,
  • Nationwide, we estimate that the total for just one year is close $9-$15 billion;
  • Nationwide, we estimate that the total over the last decade was $90-$150 billion. (This is based on the models we created over the last decade.)
