  • How Verizon's FiOS Will Change the Face of the Telecom Industry [View article]
    Both Verizon and AT&T should focus on the customer instead of their size, immense revenues, the stock market, or what Crazy Ivan or Idiot Ed are saying at any given time. If cable buys Sprint, it will be game over in the next few years. BTW, both Bells replaced innovation years ago with litigation and lobbying - both short term stop gaps.

  • How Verizon's FiOS Will Change the Face of the Telecom Industry [View article]
    You neglect to look at a couple things:
    (1) the bloody price war already underway that will further diminish returns to VZ.
    (2) VZ is moving from highly profitable services of voce and data to not-as-profitable TV -- meanwhile cable is moving the other way
    (3) VZ is the WORST phone company. Period.
    (4) Bright House took 66% of the internet market and is at more than 15% of the consumer phone market in Tampa -- because people finally have a choice to not have to be with Verizon.
    (5) There costs for installation per home are HUGE. Five guys digging and installing for 5-6 hours. Then back for fixing another day or two. High costs.
    I have had good VZ techs / installers, but many more bad ones that don't want to fix / work. Never had that with Road Runner.
    We are at the tipping point of the PSTN. Watch closely now.
