[QUOTE=pleasantcrew;2451264]i knew this was goin to happen sooner or later i havent watched cable in over 3 years. ive turned to netflix and free shows online but companies such as verizon are still penny pinching customers ,and like previous comments, they are restricting broadband speeds. i have to test my lines every other month to make sure im getting the bandwidth im paying for. verizon better straighten up before they become part of this money loosing line up and see their revenue drop in the next few years. here in nyc, a year contract for fios, $80. they are still suspicious![/QUOTE]
Restricting speeds has nothing to do with shady business practices and everything to do with shit copper. Verizon was wise and realized you can only push so much data through corroded poorly maintained twisted pair copper wire pairs, a lesson AT&T apparently has not learned.
I’m not suggesting Verizon isn’t shady, they are all shady in their own ways. Understand tho, they are doing the right thing with their fiber network. If you were wise, you would ditch your DSL broadband and move to FIOS, you will not regret it.
