VZ FiOS linear QAM uses a different (GPON) service set than their HSI offering, so it is not like classic HFC where the linear QAM bandwidth competes with the same spectrum. And NG-PON2 (the basis of their new service with can offer 2gps speeds) can coexist with GPON (it uses different wavelengths). However, VZ's VP of technology development and planning has stated that they intend to eventually upgrade everything to NG-PON2. Unstated was the timeframe of eventually, but it is clearly on the planning horizon, and moving to one technology (NG-PON2) rather than having two to manage (and service) is typically seen as a way to reduce operational expenses. As anecdotally some of the original ONTs are starting to fail due to age (some are around 15 years old), I do not think it is at all unlikely that in markets where NG-PON2 is already available they may take advantage of any required service call for an ONT failure to upgrade to the newer ONT to avoid having a future upgrade visit (and then being able to upsell the HSI speeds), which will, due to the new ONT, eliminate the option for linear QAM based TV service to that address.As Verizon upgrades their network to support 2 Gig speeds system-wide, I expect that they'll want to reclaim the bandwidth/spectrum currently devoted to QAM TV.
