Once fttp is up and running all the copper will be sold to CLEcS and the "Domestic Telephone" ( I hate that name!) will be totally glass, and VZ will be king of the communication world, we will be able to offer television, telephone,data, and wireless connectection in a bundled one bill package. Why would we want to seperate ourselves? I do not see that happening in VZ. Domestic Telco is VERY STRONG. Definately not suicidal. When we were ATT, long distance carried the local network until divestiture. We all know what happened to ATT. You are getting the wrong message from wireless. We are here for the duation.
