Can I refuse to switch from copper to fiber phone service even if I have been asked to do so by Verizon?

Can I still keep my twisted pair copper phone lines with FIOS?

If I agree to change over from Copper to Fiber, will I still be able to use a dialup internet service?

fiber verizon phone service is not necessarily FIOS.  In those areas were Verizon is replacing all Copper service with Fiber, I don't think you have a choice.  Should not effect the use of old fashion Dial up service.  Will  probably not not allow DSL service, hopefully FIOS internet is at least an option.


Not THIS is a peer to peer forum.  For answers from Verizon you need to contact them.

Verizon assistance with copper lines is ridiculous!!! I have been on hold for over EIGHTY MINUTES today trying to get any human who can order repair to my home phone which has been out for over 24 hours...Think Verizon is trying to force its copper line users to switch to FIOS by completing ignoring them and making their lives difficult.  This is insane!!!
