Re: [Billing] Leaving FIOS soon
They cut your copper connects when they install FiOS because your copper Demarc has to be hooked up to the FiOS ONT. If they can't re-splice it, they will probably have to re-run the copper from your pole or underground terminal, considering they will even do that.
That's what a lot of people were complaining about originally is that Verizon wouldn't re-hook their copper back up after someone went to FiOS, and in the cases of new neighborhoods they would forgo running copper all together and only ran fiber.

That's interesting. In my case, they put the fibre in on the other side of the house, and the copper demarc was never touched.
In fact if I go to earthlink, it say that I am available for 3/512 DSL at my address (not that I would do that).
In my patch TWC is much cheaper than DSL anyways and much faster.
Interestingly enough, my 2 year price lock expires in 2 weeks. Verizon wanted to charge me $30 more for the same 3-play but going from 25/25 to 50/25. No budge on price. NOT!
So, I'm going to go to Time Warner and get a free xbox + $150 for $89, then I can come back and get the same package for $85 + $300 GC from Verizon. I would have actually paid more than my $89 dollar deal, but no verizon will have to pay more when I come back . Off to best buy tonight.
They tried to tell me that cable modem was shared, and then I told him to explain the difference between a GPON and a CMTS...Had a little fun regardless. I also told him only 2 people on my block still have TWC, so it should be the superhighway..
