In the first place, Qwest is now CenturyLink; just as SBC is now AT&T (though CL bought Qwest, but SBC bought AT&T).

In the second place, I did enumerate CenturyLink "Prism".

In the third place, the only non-Verizon "FiOS" that I know of is Frontier; which got some Verizon "FiOS" markets when they bought Verizon's cast offs. Fairpoint also bought some Verizon cast offs, but I don't know for sure if they got any "FiOS".

In summary, "FiOS" is a Verizon TM marketing term. Calling any FTTH/FTTP network, "FiOS®" is like calling any cola beverage, "Coke®".

Both Fairpoint and Frontier obtained FiOS® markets in their purchases of Verizon's unwanted territories.

Edits to update with new information.

Oooookkkkkaaaayyyy ... whatever; and the Moon is made up of green (as in not aged) cheese, and the Earth is flat as a pancake, and at the center of the U-verse!

When I worked at a certain "fat food" joint, we sold Royal Crown Cola. Coca Cola has secret shoppers who specifically will order, "Coke®". And Lord help us if Coca Cola sent the boss a "cease and desist" letter because we failed to remind a customer that, "We don't serve Coke® here, would you like an RC Cola instead?"

They have a product search. "Fios" returns a "404 Page not found" error.

Your Cisco link describes, "Fiber-Optic Technologies"; but I see no discussion of "FiOS".

All {%Ford Escapes|FiOS% are %cars|fiber-optics%; but not all %cars|fiber-optics% are %Ford Escapades|FiOS%}.

If you call a dog's tail a leg, how many legs will a dog have? Just four; calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg!
