Verizon Flip-Flops, Supports DTV Delay
Today, Verizon Communication's CEO Ivan Seidenberg said that the company approves of Senator Rockefeller's proposed delay of the transition to DTV. Senator Rockefeller made the proposal last week, and suggested that the transition be delayed to June 12. According to Seidenberg, Verizon changed its feelings because there is a definite transition date attached to the proposal. It would not have agreed with an open-ended delay. Seideberg reiterated, "Any further delay would harm the nation's economy and broadband future, as I noted in my letter earlier this week." A final decision about the delay has not yet been made.

And What in June?
Now what about in June? These same people still will say, we had no idea, we are going to lose tv, we are on a fixed income. Well news for ya buddy, we are all on "FIXED INCOMES". And we all had to roll with the times. This has nothing to do with being selfish, it has to do with spectrum to be used for a different purpose that will benifit far more then those who don't feel like getting a converter box.
They say this is going to effect anywhere from 20 to 40 million households, I really would like some proof of this more then speculation.
