Re: Verizon is using Sandy as an excuse to force people to FiOS Hell around here on the west side of town everything is fed off a ATT CEV ( controlled environment vault). All copper runs to a mux in there and then its all fiber back to the C.O. They have a generator hookup at the CEV if its without power long enough for the mux batteries to die. We are on an old oc3 ring at our office where they drop off a ds3. All of our copper t1's have about 10ft of copper before they go to the mux and are fiber back to the C.O. Just because something is copper doesnt mean it is for much or all of the path back to the C.O.
