Comcast: Please Install Internet on a Deaf Child's Street for Videophone Access.

Dear Comcast,

You have refused to put cable lines in on our street because you claim there aren't enough houses on our street to make it worth your time. All of the other streets in our area have access to your internet service.

My son has Usher's Syndrome which affects his hearing. In order for him to make a phone call in an emergency or even to a friend, he has to use a Sorenson video phone that requires cable internet. Without this phone his ability to communicate with the outside world is blocked. He is 13 and calling friends or even to order a pizza is something he should be able to do like any other teen.

Your first quarter profits in 2012 were 1.22 BILLION. How can it hurt you to install services so a Deaf child can have communication access?

To:
Tom Karinshak, Comcast VP of Customer Experience
Brian L. Roberts, Comcast CEO
Comcast
Mindy Kramer, Vice President, Public Relations, Comcast
Laura Bowden (District Manager), District Manager
California Governor
California State Senate
California State House
Install cable lines on our street for a Deaf-Blind child to have videophone access.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Chances are this place is rural enough to were Comcast is generally the only provider for most of the general area. Those families although may be few have a right to internet access and especially the family with the boy who needs it to live a regular lifestyle and so he can be safe in the case of an emergency. He should also be abled to talk to loved ones whenever he feels just like anyone who doesn't suffer any hearing imparities.

      it's our duty to help others, I work with non-verbal children who use communication devices, their lives are enriched because of the technology. It's not to much to ask to help this child.
