"FairPoint is only slowly adding subscribers to the service and it remains unclear whether the company has any intention of actually expanding on the existing FiOS footprint"
Expand the FIOS/FAST footprint ?.. I doubt it. It takes cash that I don't think they have. They will be Milking Copper for a very long time.
Agreed. The money to build out isn't available, and copper just looks so much easier. For how long they will be milking it?... well, until it is no longer able to compete. I am still saddened that fairpoint took over, because I feel they are much less motivated to expand (even though Verizon is cherry picking).
