Re: As has been said before
said by Os:VZ doesn't have a statewide contract to lay FiOS. They have a statewide franchise agreement for TV service, but even so they don't serve all parts of the state. Up where I live it is not Verizon territory, it is CenturyLink.
Works well there for you. VZ has a statewide contract to lay FiOS too.
In fact it was because of the Government easing regulations that those in this state in FiOS areas get to enjoy it now.
Like osravens said you are lucky to live in a section where you have that option. Millions of people do not have that option and its a big deal. You don't realize it because you don't live with it every day.
Cable or DSL/Fiber pretty much if you are lucky. He said monopoly when it's actually a duopoly in most areas. Are they really that much different? In both cases the consumer gets screwed. No competition = higher prices and or bad service. To compare wireless or satellite service to a wireline service like osravens said is absurd.
In my area we either have AT&T DSL (Upgrade our lines?? I love copper, please leave it in my yard forever), Clear (please throttle me??), Satellite (I'm still waiting...) or AT&T/Verizon/Sprint/Tmobile wireless (Caps? I don't need to eat).
