Re: If Only

said by buzz_4_20:

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

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.

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!
