–Finally, two other issues: the City of New York is applying for the .nyc generic top-level domain (TLD) with ICANN. The company selected is Neustar. I testified on the topic on March 23, 2012 at DoITT but there will be more hearings on the issue. And, the City of New York will soon hold hearings on pay phones on our streets. A company or companies will be selected to replace Verizon as the operator of all most payphones. DoITT will schedule hearings on this topic as well. What do you think? Info: Will Colegrove
