WV not the only one at the bottom of VZ priorities 'same thing here, if you happen to live in an area where they have no competition. All you'll get is basic phone service, which they are legally obligated to provide to you.
Now, go a couple of miles down the road, where they face competition from Comcast, and it's a whole different ballgame.
This is in stark contrast to Qwest, which actually seems to be making an effort around here to providing something broadband to most of its territory. The city folks ding Qwest because they aren't investing in the latest 'n greatest high-speed in the urban core, put they do seem to be making an effort ot make basic broadband widely available.
