FiOS - right that makes sense. I cannot even get DSL from my local telco thato is AT&T. The phone companies have fewer headaches and make a lot more money from 4G. Even better, Verizon and AT&T are doing a different 4G implementation so not only do you have to buy a telco specific smart phone, iPad, or modem, you also have to buy a telco specific RF booster.
Fiber is being put in the ground to service dense concentrations of users and towers (backbone to internet). If you live in a rural area the odds of getting fiber are on par with getting high speed train service in the USA - i.e. zilch.
