carrot and stick..

it is likely Verizon will get the go-ahead to shut down some copper lines where they have FTTP lines... AT&T has less than 5% of it's entire residential customer base (wireline) on fiber.

If AT&T wants in on pstn shut-down they have to invest in replacing it with something else.. so they'll have to pick a poison... coax or fiber to the premise..

also, well past time for the fed to nudge AT&T to deploy more fiber... there are already thousands of nodes wired with fiber.. there really isn't much more point in letting it go to waste.. serving 25mbits a pop...
