Verizon Plans to Discontinue Copper in Several Markets [telecom]

by Edward Gately

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?
