Straight up I consider vz picture quality to be better than cc's. I've seen the two side by side at a buddy's house in Woburn. But this does remain subjective and not analytical. As for a theoretical comparison between the two system types, there is more bandwidth available to deliver video services on vz's fttp delivery network than on cc's hfc delivery network and therefore one must assume that the picture quality would be better on the vz network. Aside from bandwidth availability, picture quality does depend on how each company processes their video programming. If a provider uses equipment to reduce the required delivery bandwith of a program that provider could offer more programs, but the picture quality generally decreases when the program bitrate decreases.
As for the cc retention of your subscribership, I'm pretty sure you'll have to leave and then come back in four months in order to get a bundled discount, but they may offer you the bundled package to retain you, which would probably be around $130 plus premiums
