Verizon chief says networks would expand like crazy but for sharing requirements

In comments at the COVITS meeting in Roanoke, Verizon chief Ivan Seidenberg declared that the big obstacle to the improvement of Verizon's network in Virginia is government rules that require Verizon to share with CLECs, according to this article. Apart from this, the Roanoke Times quotes Seidenberg as saying that "Verizon plans to roll out fiber-optic connections to every home and business in its 29-state territory over the next 10 to 15 years."

I wonder what that means exactly.

Anyhow, Verizon is the regional Bell operating carrier in Virginia - the largest incumbent carrier in the state, by far (but not the ILEC in many parts of Southwest Virginia).
