Nope I'm dry loop here and I'm not a Verizon customer anymore, My ISP(which is in the Verizon area) is DSL Extreme
Who do you think owns and runs those dry loops? Hint: It's not DSL Extreme. One of the few things that Verizon would like to get rid of more then their copper users are ILEC's copper users.
I'd rethink that. the USF is designed to do that by giving money to cell phone companies for phone services. ATT is already busy making sure states kill the Minm. Tel Standards. Ohio has killed theirs if you bundle ANY thing with your local dial-tone. DSL and or LD or any other service- takes away any repair times the state set years ago.
Michigan is working on doing the same as well as other ATT serviced states.
It's California...if Sacramento can make VZ bleed money, they'll do it out of spite.
