I gather that the company providing FIOS is an unreg subsidiary, and a
CLEC, and therefore doesn't have to *sell* you transport, voice or
data. How they get to be in the wire centers, I'm not clear, though i
understand they are.
I *do* have the FIOS Tampa and National NOC phone numbers, if anyone
needs them; the St Pete Times did a piece on them when they first
rolled out, and were indelicate enough to use a high-res pic of their
warroom as the lede, with the numbers clearly readable. :-)
