Re: Fun with numbers
In the Vermont deal, FairPoint took over 99 telephone exchanges. The 51 exchanges that will see 100 percent coverage within the next two years are located in all 14 counties. Perhaps I'm being overly optimistic but the way I read that statement is: all customers served by those 51 Central Offices will be able to get DSL by end of 2010.
I can't believe only 48 Vermont Central Offices are currently equipped for DSL. I assume some of these 51 Central Offices support DSL but not remote terminals needed to serve distant customers. But that is just a guess on my part.
