Verizon & Centurylink deny killing copper [telecom]

Verizon, CenturyLink say abandoning copper network is a "myth"

By Sean Buckley

Verizon and CenturyLink may be anxious to shut down all of their copper facilities and transition to fiber, but each provider has told the FCC that de facto copper retirement is a "myth" and there's no need to include new requirements addressing the issue in its technology transition plans.

De facto copper retirement is the process where a telco would let their aging copper plant deteriorate to the point where it would become necessary to replace the copper with fiber.
