Either way, I have a hard time understanding how DirecTV (or a cable co) will be able to compete with Fiber. The bandwidth offered by those strands of glass cannot be accomplished via copper in a same space.


In the long run... no one will be able to "compete" with FiOS... but FiOS is just a method of transmission... and bandwith pipe. It is the content that is going to be the battle.

Eventually, the same rules that appled to the copper lines, will probably be put on the FiOS lines....
