I've read this in a few forums, so apologies if Blues was one of them and I'm just repeating it...

The following may be related.


So apparently, Verizon has decided not expand its FIOS network anymore. Apparently laying down more and more Fiber was getting too expensive.

So if your area doesn't have FIOS yet, chances are you won't.


Some of the RUMOR I've read is that they're going to focus on rollowing out 4g wireless internet solutions instead

I wonder if that's what they're going to announce: focusing on wireless data for homes

Yeah that was like last year's news. My cities have them, but not in my neighborhood.

Looks like it was a boring FIOS speed upgrade. And since they stopped expanding that, its not of much significance.

Isn't that around the time all the major ISP's become the MPAA's bitches and start sending threating letters to people because they think that sometime, somehow they might just have downloaded something they shouldn't have? And it doesn't matter what the person says, they are guilty and never proven otherwise?

I got such a letter many years ago... It specifically mentions the time and content (movie)...

And warns you to stop and that further action could result in some blah blah... blah...

Edit: Canadian Caps... 3.9% is scoffworthy... And nothing new... Just about every product, even those created locally, are pricier in Canada as compared to the US... Having 10 times the population (the US) changes some things...

The internet will change forever on 18th of June. It will also change forever on 17th of June and the 19th of June, and every other day.

And if it doesn't change forever than everyone can sue Verizon for false advertising, right?

I doubt they are going back to unlimited internet on smart phones.

They already said they are stopping rollouts of FIOS to new markets. Which is too bad, because if they came here, I'd jump on FIOS in a heartbeat.

Probably not going to be significant.

Verizon is going to start charging a penny per page loaded, and institute weighted delivery systems.
