Re: Is it true that Verizon stopped deploying FIOS?

said by Smith6612:

Somewhat. As More Fiber stated, Verizon's only finishing up roll-outs in places where they have agreements and an incomplete network. Otherwise, no new areas for the time being are getting it.

This is not quite true; I know of a specific area getting it installed right now; one that was not dreamed about a year ago. Suffice to say, lawyers were involved with Verizontal's decision.

No, that does not suffice, but if you told us about Verizontal's secret deployment plans, you'd have to kill us, right? Hypothetically speaking, would you be able to discuss with those of us who hold active TS/SCIs and can demonstrate a need to know?

Depends on who issued your clearance.

Re: The build-out I alluded to previously....

I did not want to be specific until there was actual work underway; in fear it might jinx something...But there is now much glass in the ground and overhead, so I doubt Ma's stepchild could/would pull out now.

It's an area of Prince Georges County MD. They've suffered for years with rotten outside plant, with POTS being miserable quality at best.

I think Verizon is either not making money out of FIOS or they have some dumb political strategy to get some concessions from the government(s).
I think it's some of each [if you say enough immediate money] plus a major change in top management & thus strategy. Verizontal is raking in money on their wireless holding, and at least acts like they want to stop doing anything wireline.....well anything except giving up their monopoly franchise rights in its core markets.

But that too could change.
