Customers who have it know it. Ask any one of them. Fiber to the house (Verizon) vs. Fiber in your central offices (cable companies) is NOT the same thing! Competition is GREAT for consumers. I think Cableguy should go work at Verizon! :)

Verizon’s $70 per bundle will easily put them over the 20 year ROI. The Cable technology to compete with FiOS is ready. It will also be deployed on their existing infrastructure unlike FiOS. FiOS is just a buzz word to compete. Don’t buy in on the hype!
