Verizon is currently the leading telco in the push to displace the cable companies as one-source voice-data-television supplier in markets they serve. They are doing this with their FiOS fiber-to-the-premises service, eclipsing the data rate capability of cable (DSL is typically half the speed of cable, or less.). They are currently offering it in neighboring Huntington Beach, I plan to get it (replacing my DSL, which runs about 700-800 kbs) when they introduce it here in Westminster. (Although I will likely keep my two-wire telephone, in case of power-out emergencies.)

Marc Strassman of Etopia Media has an interview with Verizon spokesperson Bill Kula.
