a Quest buyout? That'll be the day I have my doubts about Verizon EVER considering a merger with Quest. With copper connections on th continual decline and VZ selling off unprofitable markets (i.e. New England to Fairpoint), they'd be better off just overbuilding in Quest territories.
DBS penetration in my community is about 40%, mainly due to Time Warner Cable being so expensive (TG we don't have Comcast here).
Don't pay ME back, pay it forward.
Qwest is more rural than any of the ILECs. VZ could only rebuild the major cities as anything else would be too costly. but if that was the case they would have already done it. Instead they'll only keep their over build in Texas and stay within their own foot print.
