I seriously doubt ANYONE thinks Windstream or, for that matter, ANY provider is constructing facility in Verizon's or any other operating company's territory. We all know if it's Verizon's territory, the transport is Verizon. No matter what the claims are, the bottom line is the operating company owns the copper plant and everyone else rents facility from them.

An interesting development in western PA is that in areas where Verizon does not have FiOS, and the cable is in bad shape, Verizon is installing new copper. It's not wholesale, across the board, but in selected areas. It may have something to do with the PA PUC because I doubt Verizon has found their conscience recently.

For large customers, CLECS can and do install their own fiber, thus, bypassing LEC facilities. My former employer, Level (3), is one such example. Copper is a different story though.

We actually have (or had?) a company called Lightpath here that provided their own fiber to the premises. I think they were owned by Cablevision. I remember their equipment racks in cages in each building's basement. From the basement to each customer they installed copper. This was many years ago before Fios or the cable companies began using fiber trunking. They only served corporate parks and such.

I would doubt that it is a bonded T1 deployment. More likely, it is an HDSL or SHDSL deployment. We've used them in the past with various Hatteras, Overture, and Adtran gear. usually you get about 5 MB per pair and can bond up to four pairs to a max of 20 MB if needed. Provided they are short loops. This is what I've experienced using EoC anyways.

Ironically, with all of this talk about Verizon letting their copper plant go to hell (and it is in most areas), in their former Bell areas east of Richmond, VA, they have scrapped plans for FiOS deployment. Of course, the CATV provider is gobbling their customers up left and right. Not to be outdone, Verizon has invested heavily in some beautiful new copper plant; mostly aerial, where you can see the quality of the workmanship. They have even placed new drops and NIDs to most buildings. It's quite refreshing.

I ran into a Verizon technician out there who was working at a cross box a year or two ago. I commented on this situation and he enlightened me. He said that they offered generous relocation packages to their best copper technicians from all over the region. I have to tell you, it really shows. It's like artwork, something we rarely see anymore. It almost brings a tear to my eye when riding down those roads and seeing a 900 pair cable that's as neatly routed and bent as a conduit. There really is something to be said about quality workmanship.
