Wasted Opportunity

Now that restrictions have been lifted by the DOJ prohibiting cross marketing between VZW and FiOS, when will we see technology connecting the two?

Oh, and having Verizon FiOS stores and Verizon Wireless stores across the street from each other is awefully ridiculous. Time to co-habitate.

Re: Wasted Opportunity

You do realize they are different companies. I supposed you think Time Warner and Time warner Cable are the same company too.

Re: Wasted Opportunity

probably so...

I think this is good for consumers. My question is that will this eventually be available where the cable companies compete with fios.

In their press release it says they are adding this in other markets soon. They stayed away from Tampa on the launch for a reason i'm sure. Isn't the Tampa area the only market that BHN competes with VZ?

Re: Wasted Opportunity

Here in sunny Buffalo, they are separate. They actually shy away from you going to the store though and it holds hours worse than the post office.

Every time I have dealt w/ equipment (outside of install), they send me a box and UPS or USPS picks it up at my door the next day. Very convenient if you ask me. They also take the equipment off the books when they send the box, not when it is returned so you are not penalized for doing it this way. In addition my cablecard took 5 minutes to setup. Verizon seems to have their stuff together.

TWC has an office 5 min from my house, so it's easier to go in there, because their logistics were nowhere as integrated as Verizon.

I don't see an issue with bundling, especially if it is voluntary and there is a benefit to the consumer. Verizon does a 4-play in my area, so what's the difference?

Re: all about profit

When you see Verizon no longer airing a FiOS commercial every 30 seconds, then somebody would agree with you. You think those ads are cheap?
