Verizon taking on cable with new 'Titan' business Ethernet program

Verizon (NYSE: VZ) is quietly making plans to hit back at the decline in Ethernet cable orders with an program dubbed "Titan" – which hasn't been officially announced yet – geared toward preventing wholesale and retail customers  from turning to cable competitors.
