So let me get this straight - you conclude that there are no
commercials and opine that nobody cares because you're not seeing FIOS
commercials that talk about how great their symmetry is...  when you
live in a place that there is no FIOS.  It's almost as if someone
knows how to target their marketing dollars isn't it?  Shocking.
