Listen sonny. You know nothing about business. Everyone knows your a cvc schill and most likely work there. Once you start going to dictionarys to talk about business you prove youre ignorance and stupidity. CVC had a monopoly on "CABLE TV" in the LI area until FIOS came along. Everyone knows that. How come you do not? Even your boyfreind Dolan would tell you that. Youre so far out of touch please leave us alone because you embarrass yourself more each time you post. Now go home to Mommy for your milk and cookies.
How did CVC have a monopoly? They did not force people to use Cable. A monopoly means no choice. People had then and still do have a choice you dumb ass. Before FIOS there was Dish and Direct TV or they could have simply stayed with broadcast. That would be considered a choice.
You really can't be that stupid can you? I hope you are just pretending for your sake. Funny you call me sonny yet you don't remember what the cable world was like before FIOS. What are you 10?
