I'm not one to defend a fortune 100 company like Verizon but Cablevision needs to get heavily fined for this.

You hold Cablevision in the same regard as some mom and pop shop somewhere in Nebraska, Cablevision is the biggest supplier of cable telecom in NYC (Brooklyn) and neighboring counties. Power, they have much of it.
Of course I don't view them as some small Nebraska country store, but verizon has over 200,000 employees and provides service throughout the country. Cablevision has 3 million customers, 99% of which are in brooklyn, queens, nassau and suffolk. Surely they are the little guy in this scenario.
