Re: let them eat fiber

Verizon can, They have a shitload of money with how much profit they make. And network rebuild cost is not a major issue because Comcast seems to have had no trouble rebuilding their network after the storm.

There's absolutely no doubt that they can. The problem is, they don't want to, because by not spending the cash, they feel they can get more money from those customers who are duped into paying for VoiceLink, or the kickbacks they get from the cable companies that are marketing quadruple-play services, with Verizon furnishing wireless service.

They have a lot of profit from the wireless side of their business, but their landline side is not doing anywhere near as well. Investing in it would practically be charity until the penetration goes up.

Without all of the backhauls that were built out, acquired by, and still maintained by Verizon Business, Verizon Wireless could not exist in its present form. The cell side has been receiving indirect subsidies from the landline portion of the business since its inception.
