Re: Maybe Apples & Oranges Are the non-competition clauses similar with France or other European Union countries?

Re: Maybe Apples & Oranges @non_bosco: Well, from what I have observed, non-compete clauses, historically, have been notoriously problematic and difficult to enforce -- particularly in California.

Re: Be careful, cities... "How can this company using this strategy over and over without any problem ?"

I've been writing about it for 20 years and still ask myself that question. 

These companies all but own state legislatures, and have ensured that regional regulators are utterly toothless when it comes time to hold them accountable. And these days, the feds are pretty eager to nibble on their earlobes as well as we see by the steady erosion of net neutrality and privacy protections. Bottom line: nobody cares -- as long as there's money being bandied about for campaign contributions.

Re: Be careful, cities... Need an IRON CLAD (hold up in court) provision that states if Verizon breaks the deal that they have to take their fiber shit out of the infrastructure and go home!

Should have gotten some provision to provide residential fiber out of 'em!

Intead they got bupkis!

Be careful, cities... If you're a city and you're not looking back over all of the complaints about Verizon taking taxpayer-funded subsidies and tax cuts but not finishing its deployments (PA, NY, NJ, MA), you've got yourself to blame when, in five years, these new citywide deployment promises wind up being equally hollow.

Maybe Apples & Oranges If memory serves, Verizon unloaded its wireline + FiOS asset to Frontier in CA. Now it got back in via the wireless backdoor which could potentially make those assets become obsolete much faster with free conduits and WiFi deal with individual cities. Guess Frontier should have better non-competing clause
