Whoa, sorry this doesn't answer your question, but I have to ask.
Isn't the telephone company required to maintain copper lines to all
residences by law? There's a universal access surcharge on all of our
phone bills for that reason.

If Verizon is pushing FIOS that hard, that's a surprising level of desperation.
