Spent some time looking over the available information regarding the ATT purchase, and my intuition is that the primary objective in regard to the purchase is not the wireline business. Frontier has been marketing internet service in areas where they have telephone landlines. Indeed, this has been wherethe principle strenght of the company has been over the past year. Buying the CT landline service from ATT gives Frontier entrance into a region which has much higher demand for internet service than the largely rural environment currently served.
Agree, but read the CC transcript. FTR is going to do more business with T down the road. Uverse works on DSL. FTR is very interested in this. they may migrate FIOS customers to Uverse if it works as well as they think it will.
UVERSE does not work on DSL. It is a completely seperate and different BB system. FIOS is fiber to the premise, UVERSE is a combination of fiber to a VRAD (conversion point) and copper from there to the premise (your house). Migrating from FIOS to UVERSE would be going backwards.
