All of this is expected....The only issue I take with the TWC ad is the satellite statement. TWC is on an HFC system and the fiber goes all the way to the node (this is the route most phone companies are taking now anyway...). It does allow them to make the claim of having more fiber and from a technical aspect a FTTN system should be able to keep pace with a FTTH system for quite sometime still...FTTH is more future proof (way more future proof) but as far as consumers are concerned for the next 8-10 years FTTN should perform just as well. (possibly even beyond that?) -- "While preceding your entrance with a grenade is a good tactic inQuake, it can lead to problems if attempted at work." -- C Hacking
Don't be so hasty. Remember that VZ is running FiOS ads in markets that are not even close to being built all the way out, so many of the people who see this ad can only get DSL and a Dish bundled. And you'd better believe if you call for FiOS and you can't get it, they'll be glad to cross sell that call into a Dish bundle. I would bet that upwards of 40-50% of all Verizon territory homes that see FiOS ads can't get FiOS service.
