Re: Key Phrase
At some point you have to hire people to lay wires. Also, the cost of constantly maintaining old copper would cost a lot in truck rolls. Verizon isn't at&t, they have a plan for the future and don't sit around looking stupid all day.
said by Metatron2008:Yeah, the plan is to slowly exit the mature wireline market, while focusing on the growth market that is wireless. This might change after wireless turns into a mature market, which will happen before the decade is out, assuming they haven't found a buyer for the remaining wireline markets by then.

Personally, for as much as people bash Frontier, I'm happier to be in one of their markets. They understand the wireline business and focus on it exclusively. They'd be moving faster if they had the resources VZ has, but they are making progress in the areas they serve, and many of us are happy to have them around.

See my response to majortom1029. I'm trying to understand if anyone knows the economics of big bang vs. incremental build-out and which is cheaper or if they are about the same.
