Verizon has asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for
permission to retire copper in areas of New England, New York and
Pennsylvania as it continues moving customers to fiber-based
technology.

The carrier said it plans to retire copper facilities and replace them
with fiber facilities to provide services over its fiber-to-the-home
network infrastructure. It plans to do this on or after Nov. 30.

There are many places (like where I live) where there is no
fiber service.  What are those subscribers supposed to do?
