They have access to/control of a large amount of mid-mile and long-haul 
fiber built by/as GTE and Verizon.  Additionally, while their resi/soho 
distribution is all PON, they do have some excess fiber fairly deep into 
their network in most markets and actively offer active-E service on it 
for the right price (it can even occasionally be competitive).  I 
imagine they'd sell dark for the right price as well, though you may not 
like that "right" price.
