Re: Verizon is using Sandy as an excuse to force people to FiOS
said by McBane:I don't want to "keep my copper". I'm not nostalgic about and dreams of it don't keep me warm at night. I could care less about what the underlying technology is as long as the public has a high availability communications network available.
So nothing00, would you pay 3x or more what your currently paying for FIOS to keep your copper?
The argument seems to be, "FiOS does cool things therefore we can ditch the life safety requirements for our future critical infrastructure!"
And yes, I do agree burying power and telecommunications lines should be a priority for areas that are prone to storm related outages. And yes, I'm absolutely willing to pay my share to do it.
