AT&T, DSL, Verizon
Verizon says it will make its top-tier FiOS service, a 50/20Mbps pipe available over its whole footprint, which would make Verizon users some of the most empowered in the western world. The move comes as cable MSOs prepare an assault on DSL in further commercials.
<p>The combination of all of this puts enormous pressure on AT&T, which has no fiber offering. But it also pressures Verizon to improve DSL services. Verizon reports DSL has tapered down as customers wait for FiOS, and we believe that Verizon will be offering incentives for users to adopt DSL to hold them over until FiOS is available in their area.
