FiOS didn't stop rolling it out cause cable is cheaper that makes no sense.
Sure it does.
It costs Verizon more money to build a new fiber plant, than it costs the cable companies to maintain an existing coax plant that has already been paid for.
That is why the cable companies can beat FiOS in pricing. They may not be able to match them in speed, but most people are unwilling to pay the premium cost for the additional speed.
