I would want that in writing. After all going from 1 major monopoly (Time Warner) to another (Verizon), they could do whatever they want.
Side note: I read last night on Verizon's Fios' site that their Fios phone service is like TWC or Cablevision's - VoIP. The only reason I continue to keep an analog phone that isn't a cordless, is in situations like 9-11 or the 2003 blackout. 911 is still a fuzzy technology for VoIP, and cells don't work in situations like that.
