Re: Dropping my AT&T Landline

And what's VZ's excuse on moving away from DSL? They'll never build out into any new years. So T is just as bad as VZ.

Because VZ wanted to move away from horribly-expensive-to-maintain *copper* - and they still do.

Union-friendly politicians see copper serving customers as a labor safety-net *because* it's such a bear to maintain compared to fiber - not because it will save those same customers any money. (As the copper portion of VZ's network inevitably declines in capability, the M&R costs will only increase - how does that help customers any?)

xDSL is still going away for *all* of VZ - whether you are served by FIOS or not.
