Submission + - Frontier tells Rochester, NY 'You don't need FiOS' (

HaloZero writes: "Frontier Communications feels that rolling out FiOS service to it's Rochester, NY market is unnecessary, despite having just bought some of Verizon's FiOS assets. From TFA: "The general manager of Frontier’s Rochester division, told WHAM-TV reporter Rachel Barnhart the company believes its current DSL service is more than adequate for residents in the company’s largest service area. This, despite the fact Frontier recently adopted a handful of FiOS markets purchased from Verizon Communications. While Frontier has promised to continue delivering the fiber-to-the-home service in areas already offered the service started by Verizon, they have no plans to expand FiOS.""
