    I do not recommend Verizon. They will always have that ball and chain attached to them being has a better dividend and less debt and they have way more smartphone customers than Verizon! Plus tbey don't have to share profits with anyone else as Verizon does.

    I disagree. Verizon has much better coverage and they now have the Iphone which will cause many Apple addicts to switch to Verizon because of the better coverage.

    I still don't think people give enough of a competitive advantage to FiOS both the internet and TV components. It's hands down better than anything out there. It's only a matter of time before people start requesting the higher bandwidth with our more connected world and Verizon is the only one who doesn't have to invest in the full backbone still to provide it. Who wants a 1.5Mbps home internet when Verizon can sell you a 40Mbps for the same price. With Netflix, Xbox Live and the rest of the demand for this stuff only growing there isn't enough people seeing the huge technological advantage Verizon has in place.
