"During the third quarter of this year Time Warner, Comcast, and Cablevision lost a combined 455,000 subscribers"
How have the fiber-optic providors, AT&T and Verizon FIOS fared in the same period? Is it possible that a significent number of the supposed cord cutters switch from their cable companies to one of the TELCO providors?
I know that ,several years ago, I switched from Cablevison to FIOS due to the superior internet connectivity, the bundling of my existing land line Verizon number, and the insensitivity of Cablevison to my complaints and requests for additional channel coverage.
I am not saying that Verizon has been perfect in any of these regards, but I have no regrets over having made the switch.
