Makes you wonder how VZ will ever pay for all that FiOS TV debt. (I wrote at TMC that I think FiOS is crushing VZ). Oh, wait, VZ is port blocking. I forgot that's legal now. That certainly stops over-the-top VoIP providers and Internet TV. Wall that garden! I'm sure Comcast and Companies will be following suit so that they can pay off the collective $100B in debt from DOCSIS upgrades.
