The latest numbers show that Fios doesn't deserve all the hype that it gets as a service that is causing cable competitors to quake in their boots. Most of the Fios broadband customers are upgrades from Verizon DSL service and not conquests from competitors.
And only 20% of Fios customers are taking Fios TV. Not bad; but not great either.
Verizon is still in early stage rolling out FIOS TV. I just skimmed the highlights but I don't think FIOS TV is available in all markets yet. Since FIOS TV is new that 20% either came at the expense of Cable or switching from over the air.
Be interesting to know Verizon's internal plans and whether or not they are on target with FIOS rollout both deployment cost and take rate.
