Have You Heard About the Fiber?
I had wanted to follow that posting up with another silly ad that I had come to enjoy, but alas could not find the clip anywhere online. But I discovered today that the folks over at Broadband Reports have unearthed it. This clip is a cheap shot from Time Warner that pokes fun at Verizon's rather agressive marketing strategies with FiOS. If you live here in the Northeastern U.S., you've probably seen this. If not, here's the mudslinging you've been missing:
I like how the "Time Warner guy" points out that they've been using fiber optics for over a decade. Well hasn't everyone been using fiber in their long-haul networks for quite some time now? I thought the whole idea behind FiOS was that it pulled it that last mile to the customer's home. Last I checked, Time Warner isn't doing that. But it's a funny commercial. Either that or I'm easily amused.
