Do any of the people you know who have FiOS live in a multi-unit

We had some people from Verizon make a presentation about FiOS in
our building (it hasn't been installed yet, but they're working on
it), and they said that units that subscribed to FiOS would be having
the copper lines pulled out as part of the fiber being pulled in;
there's not enough room in the conduits for both.  It certainly
wouldn't be an issue for a house, but it is one here.
