be carefull... a "fiber rich" advertised network is not FIOS which what Uverse was advertising falsely....Part of the distribution was via fiber to a SLIC and from there it used slow ADSL over old copper pairs to get to your house.
Most of TWC is Fiber as well.
Real FIOS runs fiber to the side of your house, then runs either an ethernet cable or uses MOCA over old coax to get to the router.
Has anyone heard any talk about substantial discounts for people outside the upgrade area? If we can't get the upgrade, I don't think we should be paying nearly as much as people getting several times the bandwidth.
