Well, for the record, I don't expect anything at all out of Vzn, since 
they got it made illegal for munis to own fiber in all or part of 19
states, at least in large part on the basis of promises that they wouldn't
cherry pick in their FiOS rollouts... and then went and did just that;
it's public record they did their last deployment in 2010, and they have
no plans to do any more.

Unless, of couse, some muni or Google moves into somewhere to roll out;
*then* they'll be right there on your doorstep applying for trenching
