    A couple years ago, I heard from a high up Verizon NJ executive that even Fios services to homes will eventually be phased out in favor of wireless distribution points (routers) that would service an area or neighborhood. All multimedia would be beamed to your home wirelessly.

    Verizon definitely wants out of the land-line business, a couple of years ago they sold all their land-lines in New England States to FairPoint communications who filed for bankruptcy protection a year later.

    Also heard that Verizon was required to maintain their copper lines unless they could provide the same service at the same price to existing customers. Verizon was banking that most people would jump ship to the higher priced fios service which proved to be a bad decision for them as it did not happen.

    I love my FiOS services... I have no need of those aerial copper lines draped across my front yard...

    4Q is correct, VZN is very close to going all wireless... might even start happening around 2013 from what i have heard... I have had them all and for me Fios has been the best so far I love it and I love the discount i get off my bill each month as well
