Re: They caused the lack of subscribers by stopping expansion

Maybe in new markets but they are expanding in some current markets.

The are "fulfilling franchise agreements" where it suits them. They are not doing any new expansion. I hear every other day how NJ was supposed to be 100% wired and VZ is cobbling stuff together to get at those metrics and never intended to wire NJ 100% with fiber. On top of that they were getting government $$$ and breaks from NJ, and nobody calls them out. Manhattan isn't doing much better.

On top of this, record profits, and every other day Shammo comes out brazenly saying, FU we are going to raise rates everywhere, and when we are done, we are going to do it again.

Cable w/ Docsis 3 is competitive and can handle 99$ and while their 3 play bundles are me too, their internet-only deals are 50% less than verizon.

Granted its not in my area but in my drive in RI they are wiring up some new towns. They have the black cylinders attached to the fiber strapped to the bottom of the poles.
