Verizon Ready for Battle

Michael McKeehan, Verizon director of Internet and technology, declared today at FTTH that Verizon’s FiOS is ready for whatever bandwidths its competitors ramp up to. “If they offer 6Mbps, we go a bit better. We don’t see the need to ramp up the speeds just yet,” said McKeehan.

The problem that I see, is an availability that comparatively is more limited than other broadband companies. Fiber to the premises is great, but a quick look at an availability list shows that its proliferation is sparse.

Hopefully Verizon will spread it more drastically this year. I’d love to get some fiber in my Internet diet.
