In April 2008, Verizon signed a franchise agreement in which it promised the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT) that it would build its "state-of-the-art fiber-optic network throughout the entire City by mid-year 2014."

The June 30, 2014 deadline is about to pass without Verizon meeting the requirement. The company is blaming Hurricane Sandy from October 2012 -- even though Verizon was still claiming to be "ahead of schedule" in April 2013.
