Well, it's not quite that simple. I run a global network so I buy lots of services in lots of countries and areas so I can tell you what out there even though I don't see FIOS commercials on my local TV channels, we are quite aware of the capabilities of FIOS and its competitors. I have lots of FIOS services, various cable services, Uverse, Xfinity, most carrier gig E services. I have both business class and residential services as well as dedicated fiber paths and microwave systems so yeah, I know what service is available just about anywhere you would like to discuss.
>>>From a Verizon press release last summer, all FIOS speeds are now symmetric.
>>> And no one cares. I don't even see Verizon commercials crowing
>>> about how great it is to have symmetry. If customers loved it that
>>> much don't you think they would market that way?
>>You must not get out much. There's a whole Verizon ad campaign about "half fast Internet".
> And no one seems to care about it. By the way, Verizon commercials do
> not run everywhere. Like Chicago or anywhere else that FIOS is not
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.
