Re: Where is the evidence?

Still make even more money using the cellular service.

Ongoing maintainance will be much cheaper too, upgrade the wireless, cut the copper, return I suspect will be less than a year.

EARTH

The thing is, cellular doesn't really compete with DSL. In most places, they will lose subs to cable, as in-town places that can get DSL usually have cable, in a few other places, a wide open market would entice cable, and in the remaining ones, satellite is probably the next logical choice, and then if they wanted wireless, there are competitors they can go with. Those scenarios don't work well for AT&T when they already have a copper plant. This whole thing doesn't make sense. What states should do, however, is give AT&T the right to cut ANYONE off of copper provided that they provide a GPON fiber connection to them. That would promote deployment of FTTH. FTTH is a direct replacement for telephone and internet, and adds triple play to the mix.
