Verizon ads highlight FTTH advantages over cable

Verizon is running a new series of ads that tout the symmetrical speed benefits of its FTTH FiOS broadband service over competing cable offerings.

The ads arrive as Verizon nears the completion of a deal to sell to Frontier its wireline networks in California, Florida and Texas, a move that will consolidate Verizon's network primarily on the East coast.

One product Verizon choosing to highlight is a new triple play bundle of 100 Mbps symmetrical Internet, TV and phone service for $69.99 a month for the first year.
