I remember when verizon was defending FIOS push.
And that's why they should be OK with FIOS. We've been looking at houses lately as we just sold ours. In those houses that had FIOS available every one of them had a FIOS box on the wall. Those that were not vacant many were also FIOS TV subscribers as well.
I know in our neighborhood (got FIOS in 2008) I'm seeing more and more FIOS Boxes show up on houses. In the house we just bought you can get FIOS and I'm thrilled. No Comcast (I would have dealt with them) and hopefully I can just take my FIOS boxes with me.
It is a great product and much better than Comcast. Shame they won't build it out more. As a Verizon shareholder I'd like to see them in a better long term position than short term.
And now I can actually see the point. With the advent of mobile devices people are no longer connected at home.
Really? People need good connections at home. I know I work from home, have an online bakup, VOIP, and an Apple TV. I love our 20/15 FIOS connection with no caps. I also love my data on the go but I need a good connection at home. I don't know anyone that has given up their high speed internet for the stuff on their phone. And with overages and limits I don't see that happening any time soon either.
