U-verse rolls in Sacramento; FiOS in Brooklyn

The nation's two largest telcos appear to be be in a zone with ongoing expansion of their broadband service upgrades. AT&T has expanded the existing availability of U-verse in California to the Sacramento market, while Verizon has entered the New York City borough of Brooklyn, and won the right to roll out service in Garden City on nearby Long Island.

U-verse can now be found in parts of eight states, and FiOS in parts of 16 states. TV service may not be synonymous with telco services just yet, but the ongoing - expansion will allow telcos to start to catch up to the cable TV players in terms of bundled services. The present is all about telco-cable competition, but the future could be defined by a new hierarchy of true multimedia carriers.
