Re: A better idea That's not very good considering how long many of these markets have had FiOS. Even with the help of Sandy.
In the markets near me with fiber (not FiOS) the adoption rate over DSL is more than 40% and the fiber has been active for less time. The TV service is a major driving factor. The other being faster speeds for the same price.
With 3, sometimes 4 TV providers, I think 40% is pretty good.
