Re: "Wall Street punished us for investing in FIOS."

If those "socialists" are beating us it is mostly because they are in a growing economy as opposed to our stagnant one.

In any case, these broad anti-corporation sentiments are just as careless as the pro government as the solution sentiments. I’ve got some news for you --- its all people folks. Governments, corporations, they are all made up of many, many people. They are equally subject to the temptations of power and money (essentially the same thing).

I personally love my fios. It’s the best broadband and TV quality I’ve ever had. It’s a shame that Verizon has abandoned it. And if there is possibility they have colluded with the cable providers then the FCC should take a serious look. But make no mistake, if wall street wasn’t ready to support financing the billions it would take to continue the fios build out then that’s just the facts.

FIOS is an outstanding service. Nearly everyone I know has transferred to it. The performance and quality are a huge improvement over Time Warner.

Verizon installing fiber here!

I don't know if it's for FIOS, but they are installing new fiber optic lines here in NE Pa, Luzerne County. They don't have any info on why, but they have been doing it for about 6 months now, and are digging up roads as we speak.

Florida Boy I guess you don't care about the workers that built FIOS that won't have jobs and have made Verizon and stockholders money. So what if they loose there jobs, right?
