Cuckoo

She's cuckoo! Can Frontier offer DSL to former FiOS customers who don't have the copper anymore without having to reinstall a new copper connection?

I doubt it. I certainly wouldn't go back to copper if I had Fiber.

If I had fiber I would certainly go for it. The DSL tops out at 12Mb and Cable is 20Mb. I would be very happy with a 15/5 fiber connection though.

No, you wouldn't... I HAD fiber from Frontier. Guess what my speeds were? 3Mbit down... 786kbit up. Yeah. I switched to Comcast. For the life of me I still can't figure out why anybody would chose fiber for a slower connection.

I tried to raise hell with them, didn't work. Oh well...

The only " deploys fiber to the home "all across the country that Frontier deploys is for its Ultra long haul [nationwide] backbone.. unless they leased it. [From Level 3, or another provider.]

When Verizon still ran the operations it was estimated that the FTTP FiOS was saving $110 year in maintance costs, per line by switching from copper to fiber optics.
