    only comes where they receive gubmint subsidies to sling it. I live in an area of upstate NY where they were paid to run fiber. They have both systems running right next to each other here. I still use the old copper system because it works when the power goes out. The fiber optic phone service has a four hour battery back up they put in your house. We loose power for a few days at a time on a regular basis. They are trying all kinds of promos to get people to switch over. If you require fast broadband it is worth it. Otherwise, not so much.
