Depending on where you live, the entrance of a fiber carrier may or may not sway your pay-TV decisions. Apparently Comcast sure thinks it will
in Philadelphia, and it got us to wondering just how eager people are to transition from tried-and-true cable to the likes of U-verse
TV (AT&T) and FiOS TV
(Verizon). Moreover, would those of you in satellite contracts also consider jumping ship when the time came? Why or why not? We've certainly seen less than enthusiastic reviews
for both major fiber carriers
in the US, but it's not like cable companies are spot free of issues
, either. If fiber came calling, would you come running (and if so, from who)?
