The competitors are working together to create the site with the aim of getting customers to stay with a traditional phone company rather than jump ship to cable providers or rival internet phone companies. allows customers who move from city to city to switch services and service providers but only to those provided by the local phone company. A customer can also set up their television with a satellite partner or through AT&T’s U-Verse or Verizon’s FiOS, but cable is not listed as an alternative.
