Re: Which Markets?

They haven't said, but I speculate Central Florida will be one of them. I've noticed them coming thru the neighborhood deploying an awful lot of UPS systems and generators on the cable plant. This usually means only one thing: phone is not far behind. And I happen to know from some "sources" (ohhhh that sounds sooooo important) that they wanted to roll it out in 2005. So I think we're one of those markets. Time will tell.

Cox will be phasing out the type of phone system you have in SD over time in favor of VoIP. Circuit switched is going the way of the dinosaur.

Exactly, VoIP is a lot cheaper than traditional circuit switched...
