Marketing Dept types are mostly sleazeballs

In a corporation the marketing departments are usually the ones with the least tenuous hold on the truth. The old saw "buyer beware" applies as always to ANYONE buying anything. Lies are their stock in trade.

That really is more for politicians. Marketers don't lie they just make it prettier than it really is. Politicians just lie about everything including the hookers they paid.

Truer words were never spoken...er, written (typed?)

I haven't watched the TW ad lately, but IIRC they just talk about having a fiber network of their own. Nothing about FTTH.

Besides, if we really want to split hairs, Verizon has a HFC network too, since everything from the ONT to the various devices in the home is copper.

Someone mentioned that it's all about the services you can deliver to the consumer at the price you can deliver it, not the way you do it. If the cable companies can squeeze enough out of their HFC network to compete with Verizon, they'll do fine.

Hopefully a combination of DOCSIS 3 and IPTV will do just that since the chances of Qwest rolling out a FTTH solution here seem to be just marginally better than your chances of finding an honest and knowledgeable marketing flak.

and Marketing is usually not on good terms with Legal because legal has to clean up any messes Marketing makes if they "extend" the truth too far.
