African American leaders must stand up and defend the DE program and its reforms, and push hard for more secondary market transactions. We need to use all available business, advocacy and regulatory tools at our disposal to advance opportunities for African American entrepreneurship.
I started to reflect on how I ended up in the mess -- this personal journey about my love and obsession with, well, telecommunications (though you may call it broadband, Internet, cable, wireless, etc).
In 2009, I came across a rate increase on Verizon New York's regular, residential local phone service which was granted by the NYPSC. It was based on Verizon's claims that they had undertaken a "massive deployment of fiber optics" and had major financial 'losses.'
Cable television systems thumbed noses at Senator John McCain's call a couple of years ago for unbundled content options, but consumers have responded to a wider marketplace of real-time choices and technologies.
You needn't worry about my daughter--she learned from this experience not to accept crumbs from those who think that people with disabilities don't deserve the best the world has to offer. So thank you for galvanizing me into helping to change the world for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The NYC Mayor's Office of Tech & Innovation has asked for bold ideas and innovation to "help bring high speed Internet to all New Yorkers", including "more choices among ISPs", and "expanded service to underserved communities", which may require "policy changes".
