Clash of the titans

The Norfolk paper has this interesting account of the developing battle between Verizon and Virginia cable operators over telecommunications services.

The article says, in part:

"After years of dominating their distinct territories – one in dial-tone service, the other in TV entertainment – technology has blurred those divisions. With both companies holding the end of a wire into homes and offices, they have crossed over into each other’s businesses to fight for the ultimate customer: the consumer who bundles voice, video and broadband Internet service."

This column from the Washington post says: "A choice of broadband access that's limited to the cable company and the phone company would be extraordinarily bad."
