What Price FiOS?

12:30 PM -- We write a lot about how optical gear recovers from fiber cuts. Too bad there's no 50-millisecond restoration when your fiber dig cuts other kinds of lines.

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) chewed through 200 water and sewer lines during its first month of FiOS fiber installations in Sarasota County, Florida, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

So, would you get FiOS if it meant having to boil all your water for a while? I smell a marketing opportunity for Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK).
