Re: They caused the lack of subscribers by stopping expansion

They're also facing surprisingly stiff opposition from the likes of Comcast, Cablevision and Time Warner Cable, who are all ramping up internet speeds, offering crazy intro bundle deals and providing as many value-adds as they can to stop customers from leaving or win them back.

As good as FiOS Internet is, frankly that's the only real differentiator they've got. Their TV product is not all that amazing and their phone product is not much better than standard POTS.

How is the phone product "better" than standard POTS? Standard POTS doesn't rely on power being available at the customer premises.

With the FTTH tech, VZ can beat the pants off of DOCSIS based services.

But it's not as profitable as wireless so since they can't get as much blood from FIOS as from Wireless so they don't bother investing.

Invest in the future not in next week.

Compared to Cablevision TV it is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Youve got to be joking.
