Verizon

Verizon's build out was designed to be in affluent communities. If you look at the average income of where FTTH is deployed the income is above the national average. Verizon is only going to where the demographics are going to pay. They will not deploy in low income areas. So they are now at a standstill.

I live in a very affluent area. No Fios for me. But it's available in the less-affluent area 600 feet away. It's even available in slums like Passaic, NJ.

I disagree, here in pittsburgh, Fios was deployed in east liberty, definitely not a high income area. I suspect deployment may be partially, if not entirely based upon the age of the CO equipment.

Thats not true in my area. They deployed it to the county seat. That town has the lowest income in the county. EVERY town that surrounds it has higher per capita income and more residents. Cherry picking in my area? not so much.
Cable internet in my town is decent $33.03 for 25/5. But id still jump to FIOS in a heartbeat
