NY PSC still mulling Verizon grounding issue

The New York Public Service Commission is still mulling whether or not Verizon Communications has effectively responded to concerns about electrical grounding problems in its FiOS broadband installations throughout the state. Light Reading, which has been closely following this issue, reports that the PSC has "serious, new concerns" about whether the Network Review Plan Verizon submitted addresses the problems. The PSC added that a recent round of inspections didn't produce enough information about "the number of households or the nature of noncompliance involved." Verizon, meanwhile, said in a related filing that the problem has been overstated.
