Maybe TWC should offer discounts if subs switch from verizon to t-mobile?

FiOS hope.

So Verizon has not totally given up on FiOS; I guess they can't with $23 billion invested.

And the FiOS commercials that air every 30 seconds of every minute isnt enough to prove they havnt "given up" ?

There's a difference between given up on selling vs given up on competing.

Umm not really. If FioS prices were raised twice as high, they would sell FEW, wouldnt they?


anon loser

@comcast.net

The game is the same, just the players change

Then next year Verizon will be in a contract feud with CBS. Lather, rinse, repeat.

No go on far west side Midtown Man'h

Don't know where all those big VZ fiber rolls went to but nothing yet in smaller brownstones, probably just the big new towers. Smalls lined with DISH and TWC still. Getting old missing CBS and its .com
Set up digital rabbit ears and surprised how strong & clear signals are. Cut cord while back but was getting the basic feed until bought own modem and they ended that little freebie. No loss, at least I get CBS for free. Screw TWC and its policies. Broadband only deal now.
Bang out a bottom barrel price for Standard.

Re: FiOS hope.

Whoever Verizon sold the great unwashed to did not want to compete with CATV. Those who could get fiber to the premise were charged $500 if they wanted TV.

Verizon will hustle and or force FiOS in the areas it is deployed but I don't see them buying the mayor a swimming pool to get any new franchise. Even in NJ with a state wide CATV franchise FiOS is where it is and that is it.

Consider Verizon's 2 year offer: 1 year at $35, $45, $55.. then year two at $20 more.. that's horrible considering that you could switch or run the retention gauntlet to see if they can do better in a year. Certainly worth more than paying $180 more for internet over year two. Maybe not twice the price, but competing? I leave you to draw your own conclusions.

and what exactly are you basing this on " horrible"? As opposed to WHAT? Google Fiber?

The way things are shaping up with my loop can beat-up your loop FiOS is the undisputed broadband champion of the world; ask a geek. Pure QAM for the TV people; sad "Ma Bell" is dead, well he retired, no glass for you.
