Här lite korrekta uppgifter om affischen användar'n såg i New York:

The following article appeared in BUSINESS WEEK ONLINE on January 27, 1998:
"Telecommunications upstart RCN Corp. has of late been working overtime to
draw attention to itself. It has been tweaking
titans such as Bell Atlantic, Cablevision, and Time Warner as it seeks to
gain a foothold in the rich residential phone, cable, and
Internet access markets of the Boston-to-Washington corridor. "No empire
lasts forever," reads an RCN billboard, against a
background of raised fists and cold-war symbolism. "Especially one that
keeps you waiting five hours for a repairman" -- a wait
RCN promises to shorten."
