The #Waiting4FiOS campaign is a collaborative project of Common Cause/NY and Consumers Union.

Common Cause New York is the statewide New York chapter of Common Cause. We are dedicated to restoring the core values of American democracy, reinventing an open, honest, and accountable government that empowers ordinary people to make their voices heard. We are dedicated to the principle of universal telecommunications service, concerned about the negative impact of media and telecommunications consolidationand take your right to reliable service extremely seriously.

Consumers Union is the policy and action division of Consumer Reports. We work with our million plus activists to pass consumer protection laws in states and in Congress. We hammer corporations that do wrong by their customers, and encourage companies that are heading in the right direction.
