If Only

They kept expanding the FIOS footprint. Even pushing other companies to deploy fiber and drum up some competition.

Exactly.. The comment, "Says More 'Troublesome' Copper Lines to Be Migrated" does not equate to "Further expansion".

I really wish they would have run FiOS into my community. They past right by us and ran it an additional 10+ miles to the local administration offices but bypassed the established communities along the way.

They could eventually. Once they finish up their commitments with cities, they very possibly could explore to see where they could deploy FiOS and make a healthy profit. They are not going to turn entire communities onto LTE in the future. That is simply not feasible.

Except they've stated they won't be expanding any further.

Verizon in a lot of places cannot push FIOS more because of agreements they made with the cable companies. By that I mean those cable companies agreed that they would not move into the wireless business in Verizon areas and they would not extend FIOS into those cable provider areas. So right now they are at a stand off because of that issue.

At this time. Nothing is forever. Especially in telecommunications.

Once again, wait until the LTE build is done. I'm betting FTTH expansion will come back in the next couple of years.

I'm guessing you're assuming they have a gentlemen's agreement?

Actually, that would be the best thing for everybody, except the doupolists! Verizon and the other telcos running around trying to cut the "unmentionables" off the cable-crats and vice-versa! A famous economist (Galbraith) called it the "theory of countervailing" power; it would make competition real, immediate and sudden!

They have seen the future, and it is LTE (With Caps and Overages, of course.)

I suspect FIOS expansion is dead forever barring a massive shift in the competitive landscape.

Again, they can't move entire towns/cities to LTE. I don't know how no one on this website can grasp this concept. There is no possible way LTE can support that much traffic. Not even close. LTE will only work in sparsely populated areas. The LTE network is already slowing down and they have hardly anyone using it for home usage.

It can, it's just a question of how many access points they build.
