Bring in FIOS

Great. Let's force ATT outta here. I want FIOS in my area.

Is that possible?

FIOS sounds good! The faster we get them in here, the faster those sixty people can get jobs at Verizon customer care.

Verizon would roll out FiOS in a heart beat in CT if that would means kicking AT&T out.

Verizon does service the Greenwich area, but the rest of the state is at&t, I think.

They are also moving into the Stamford Area where the $$$ is.

If I am reading the link to opensecrets correctly, Verizon has spent more than ATT on lobbying. Is that OK since they are deploying fiber, we can turn the other cheek? Makes sense to me???

Verizon doesn't want to obide by a law that Cable Companies have to obide by though.. They think they are different, hence why we call them Telcos in the first place. They think they should be able to bypass local franchises and not obide by a market cap. Comcast is in many sections of CT.

I suspect residents of CT would side with Verizon if they rolled FiOS though

Didn't Verizon sell off their North East territories?

Verizon sold Maine New Hampshire and Vermon. Structurally, Connecticut is part of Westchester.

if those 60 people were part of a cell center that ATT shut down changes are would still be down under VZ. One of their main call centers is in Marion, Ohio. The home of the former GTE call center. They answer phones there until the office closes for the VZ East area- formally GTE and Bell. And then at close the call center changes to handle callers from the Western area. Don't believe me call their call center and ask if they're in Marion, Ohio.
