Re: Gotta love those jealous cable companies and their customers

You do realize Verizon is making billions upon billions even as it builds out FIOS *and* LTE wireless.

Every other company laying down huge amounts of infrastructure, like for example cable companies making their initial coax plant, had to amortize the cost of their plants over decades. Verizon is able to pay for everything, both wired and wireless, up front. It`s just insane how profitable they are.

Other rural carriers have to borrow money to lay out fiber, but not Verizon. Seriously, all this money is being siphoned away from our economy just to line the pockets of execs and `investors`.
