Cablevision Wires Schools for Phone

Cablevision Systems is offering schools and libraries on Long Island, N.Y., free telephone connections.

The move is part of Cablevision’s Power to Learn public-affairs initiative, in which the cable distributor offers free subscription TV and high-speed-Internet service to more than 4,000 schools and libraries in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

With the addition of digital phone service to the mix, Cablevision is branding the initiative Triple Play for Education.

Cablevision announced the free phone offer Friday at an event at Harborsfields High School in Greenlawn, N.Y., attended by Suffolk Country Executive Steve Levy and Cablevision chief operating officer Tom Rutledge.
