Fibre-optic providers top customer polls

January 7, 2010

Fibre-optic service providers for Internet, TV and phone services scored tops overall in Consumer Reports’ latest survey of telecom services in the US. Verizon FiOS and AT&T U-verse, whose networks are fibre-optic based, received top scores for Internet and TV service and were among the better phone providers.

Consumer Reports’ survey also found that satellite TV had strong points. While DirecTV and Dish Network scored below fibre and the best cable services for TV service overall, they were on par with those top providers for channel selection and picture and sound quality.
