Verizon didn't stop rolling out FIOS because there was no demand. They stopped rolling out FIOS because they'd done their most dense markets, and didn't really care about the less dense ones. There's plenty of people who'd LOVE to get FIOS, and Verizon doesn't care to roll it out to their neighborhood.

It's not that Verizon doesn't care, it's that to make any money they need to have X population density to justify it. It is quite simply a metric shitload of money to deploy fiber and its also an endless source of problems with permits, labor, construction and so on. Verizon knows people love FiOS, I have a few buddies who work there who say the company is all about getting it to as many homes as possible because they know its a home run. They are maxed out though, they dumped billions into deployments just to get where they are and shareholders were getting antsy. Unfortunately the government isn't handing out subsidies to deploy fiber in most areas and if they are they are handing out the contracts to local companies.

I think the local municipalities will get there long before the government or corporations do, assuming they don't get sued by the telco/cableco like a few have already.
