Board of Public Utilities will hold a public meeting to investigate operations of Altice USA

The State of New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) will hold a public meeting to investigate the operations of Altice USA in New Jersey at 10 a.m. March 16.

On Feb. 17, the BPU, after review of various complaints from municipal and government officials requesting an investigation and intervention in this matter, found that there is sufficient cause to convene a public hearing to afford both the officials and Altice customers the opportunity to voice their concerns about the services received from Altice; as well as afford the company the opportunity to respond to these concerns before determining what corrective action may be warranted and should be taken in this matter.

Comments on this matter may be filed either at board.secretary@bpu.nj.gov or filed electronically through the board’s External Access Portal upon obtaining a MyNewJersey Portal ID. Once you establish a MyNewJersey account, an authorization code is required which you can request by emailing the NJBPU’s IT Helpdesk at BPUITHELPDESK@bpu.nj.gov.
