Re: Really Mr. Moffett?

In his defense, VZ's investment in FiOS hasn't exactly spurred any great growth for the company. Not exactly imploding, but.....
"great growth", well, how much did FIOS PREVENT a decline? If FIOS isn't a core product, atleast its a retention offer to keep defections to slow 8mbitps cable and MSO VOIP.

Once again, increasing the bottom line doesn't necessarily mean growth. I don't know that FiOS is a retention offer for many people. Price tends to be the biggest retention offer around. Does VZ compete on price, at least for retention purposes?

If the telco doesn't offer a triple play, there is no incentive not to switch to cable triple play. Sat Tv doesn't apply.

The incentive is price for a lot of people.
