The government has to do something, It took the government to get 99% of this country wired up for electricity, because back when electrical grids where a new thing it was just like modern broadband is today with greedy companies not wanting to invest.
If the corps do not like it they can go pound sand IMO, they had their chance and they failed, They failed to do their duty as communications provider. the people should not have to suffer so top shareholders can afford a second leerjet.
You sound like those "Occupy" People, Corporations owe The People something. Verizon has stopped their expansion, this only means that their projected expansion has stopped. No good Company is going to keep expanding if no one is buying their products. I keep telling you guys, if you have a Community or City in Verizon territory that wants FiOS. All you have to do is get organized and approach Verizon with a viable Business Plan. Verizon is a Business, and I can assure you they will not turn away a good Business Opportunity.
