I seen some techs but they are usually driving by. Thanks anyways Nate and if you do manage to run into one could you ask then? I will do the same on my end. Also i did notice something that strikes me as odd. We all know that Fios requires that big green box on the pole for power. The question is why would a single duplex building requires that when all they need is the fiber line? . Also that green box wasn't there a month ago.

[Business] Re: FIOS scheduled for Bronx NY - Castle Hill - yet?

On the other side of #6 subway/Westchester Ave, that's correct with the CO nearby, nothing showing for Unionport Road/Odell Street toward Parkchester section.

Good news if you are off Castle Hill Ave, using 22xx Haviland (just off CBE service road) - Fios is "live" - standalone, Double & Triple Play bundles, contract & no contract. Basically, free installation & wireless router plus DVR & std. STB for life deal, especially for Triples @ $84.99/mo. Not sure if they are extending it further down toward the Bruckner, yet ...

(P.S. Mix of private 1-3 family homes & 6 story buildings, overhead poles or aerials in/thru backyards)

FiOS has been active in Castle Hill for some time, just not on my particular section of the street. They've bypassed the private homes for which they can't readily get to the utility poles without asking the property owners for access.

I see this is getting odd and more odd. The other day i ask one of the big trucks that says "Ask me about FIOS" so I did and the first thing they ask me: Do you live in a private home or a building. So i said building, then the techs told me that will take time because they need the landlord to give then permission. While homes all you need is permission to connect it since 193rd street has fios.

Fios service is available in Tiebout CO some of the first buildings to have it are the Twin Parks buildings on 180th and Southern Blvd.

Heard a couple weeks ago that negotiations were tough, but that there was movement that makes this year promising. Realize this when Verizon got the franchise for Fios the city and state made it so no landlord could keep Fios out a building. That being said the company must still negotiate.

This is the thing that really gets me annoyed. I understand landlords have rights but the right to block their tenants a service they already have is insane. What im saying is : i live in a building and i been a verizon customer since 1990 why would i not allow Verizon to move into the future and help me cut the amount of visits to fix anything since fiber is less likely to get damage by pest like copper gets.

Last thing we heard regarding FIOS in Coop City was that Cablevision had signed an exclusive marketing agreement with the Coop City Board which means that FIOS would not be able to do any direct marketing(door to door/lobby) within Coop City. Verizon apparently has a problem with that and thus the delay. Verizon should find other ways to market to the residents there. Cablevision wins everyday FIOS is not in Coop City.

Only way Verizon can do something is that the tenants demand it. Not sure theres any other way

Hey guys. I was driving home today and I saw two FIOS trucks on W 235th and Netherland Avenue. Looks like they were running the fiber cables underground? They had manhole covers open. Either way, looks like Verizon is finally breaking ground in Riverdale.

I expected Riverdale to have had it already.

What does the fiber cables look like?

I recently saw several Verizon trucks in my area up and down the street for about 5 to 6 blocks. The Verizon Techs were lowering a white tape like "cable" of a spindle into each manhole. Then Con-Edison trucks the next few days.

Closeup view of the black fiber cable with connector
We just got VZ Fios installed in our house, and the black fiber cable is very similar to the RG-6 coaxial cable in size, it's a bit flatter (not as round) - if you are up close enough to touch & look, you can see the white lettering identifying it as fiber.

According to the rep I spoke with yesterday Fios is nowhere close to being available in my neighborhood (and this is is after being told by two different technicians that the CO on Tiebout Avenue has been upgraded to provide the service).

Hopefully this isn't true but if it is then this sucks.

hey guys.

hey ddg keep me posted on your side of town. Also the tech I keep running into keep saying the same thing. If you live in a house pretty soon but if you live in a building then you are out of luck if your landlord won't allow us to come in.
