If only they had shown such aggressiveness with Fios

While they are to be congratulated for being ahead of schedule, it is only fair to compare this performance with the way that have lied, cheated, and screwed around with Fios installations.

Keep in mind the deadlines that have been ignored, the commitments that have been abrogated, and the duplicity shown in that piece of the business.

Unfortunately, Verizon Wireless is not the same company that provides FIOS.

True. They were in the initial portions of FiOS but that quickly died off. LTE however, is much faster and cheaper to deploy than fiber to the home, which is why they can deploy it as fast as they've been going. Getting adequate connectivity to cell sites for LTE isn't too difficult either, since there's plenty of methods around that supply ample backhaul to each tower.

Bingo. The margins on wireless service warrant a fast rollout. Building out FTTH is costly and time consuming. How long did it take the real AT&T to build the PSTN? More than a couple of years. Give it time

VZW has a LOT of work to do if they are upgrading their entire 3g footprint.

They are further along than anyone else. Verizon has more 4G than T-mobile or Sprint has ANY G.

The reason why FiOS slowed is 2-fold. A) the brainchild behind it left the company. B) ignorant and impatient shareholders that the new management caters to.

HOLD YOUR CARS WE HAVE A winner!

This applies to 99.9999% of companies, not just VZ and not just FiOS.

And C) VZ is focusing on its LTE deployment.
