Re: hmm It has nothing to do with FIOS. Fios is the consumer and small business product.
Verizon has business fiber that in most cases is a direct fiber connection to the CO. Just like what I have at work. I am willing to bet the Clec service that's down in lower manhattan will be replaced with fiber from the building to the Verizon Co and then will be connected to the existing Copper from the offices in the building to the new fiber with something like the cisco box that I have in my building.
