All the Telcos are doing this. ATT, Verizon...
Copper plant is aging and triple the maintenance (maybe even more).
Pensions are going up (not down).
No new infrastructure.
Push up prices then in 6-12 months promise newer, LTE wireless with "broadband" speeds at only double the price but 20x faster!
Verizon plans Fios and LTE. DSL and POTS are dead.
Welcome the antenna overlords!
I keep reading on here where 'copper' is going to die, as its so old.
It can last for decades, just like the power lines going to and in our homes.
