Re: Verizon is using Sandy as an excuse to force people to FiOS

A lot of Verizon's copper was damaged in that storm from the water. I know what you mean about the ONT and the battery back-up and all, but the fiber is supposed to be more reliable as far as outdoor elements go. They just better honor the same price she has now.

The area is question is all overhead wiring. Its a no brainer if it was a similar situation to Lower Manhattan. All things considered, the copper phone line service was the most reliable utility in the area after that storm.
