Peter might not be able to pay his FiOS bill, but apparently a lot of folks can. The Verizon fiber optic service now has over 2.5 million subscribers. That puts Verizon above Bright House Networks, but of course way behind the gigantic 25+ million subscriber base of Comcast.
Still, that’s not that bad considering that Verizon first started rolling out the fiber only a few years and is still only available in some markets. Personally, I have not heard of anyone that has access to FiOS turning it down over another provider. Some people look up the availability every single day. Maybe it’s the fact that the prices are reasonable, the speeds above par, and there are new features occasionally like free hotspot access.
