Does Verizon still own/manage ANY of their Fios territories?  I thought it was all sold off to Frontier at this point.  It certainly all is, along with all their legacy LEC territories not having FTTx and having some form of DSL, around here.  The latter DSL offerings are usually pretty hilarious.  It's mostly run out of the CO or existing RTUs from the POTS era.  I can't imagine they have a ton of subscribers outside of areas with literally no other wireline options, and I'm guessing a lot of that infrastructure hasn't been touched in a decade-plus.

Is Frontier-managed Fios included in those numbers regardless, or are they separate like I'd expect them to be?
