In a local paper, "Devastated and wiped out by superstorm Sandy, Verizon has no plans to rebuild its copper-line telephone network in Mantoloking (NJ)." VZ landline is giving up to be replaced by VZW services.
What happened to carrier of last resort?
Why would VZ give up revenues to VZW that it has to share with Vodafone?
The union must be standing around with its mouth agape.
Regulators? What regulators?
VoiceLink was the plan all along. Super storm Sandy just gave them an excuse.
My question: How can VZW be whining to the FCC about lack of spectrum, when they are shutting down copper and replacing it with wireless IF they are out of spectrum????
So now LTE becomes fixed wireless replace of POTS.
Do you hear that? It's the sound of copper being clipped.
