Re: The next Bell System VZ has already sold off FiOS networks. And they only recently started using it for Ethernet- which isn't even an option currently.
said by TBBroadband:That's because it was part of a system that they no longer wanted, but had to get rid of the piece with FiOS as part of the deal. Verizon wasn't specifically looking to sell off FiOS as the OP here suggested they should do.
VZ has already sold off FiOS networks. And they only recently started using it for Ethernet- which isn't even an option currently.
And Frontier, who owns that portion of the FiOS network, has raised prices and installation fees on it in an apparent effort to kill it off.
Verizon could have kept those FiOS Networks. But the reality would have been, why support 1 single network in Indy when the entire state would be sold? It would cost them more money it wasn't about being part of a system, if that was the case Cali which was never BA would have been sold off since it was part of GTE.
