They have been digging. I've seen them. I am happy.

Just look for verizon trucks carrying a large spindle of black cables. Large as in it may be the height of the average person and might weight a ton.

Saw quiet a few verizon trucks by the poles today pulling cables. One of the techs I asked said that it is fiber for FIOS and that it would be going live in 2-3 months. My area is Gifford Ave and Balcom Ave. When I drove around my area these trucks were all over the place starting from Lehman Highschool to East Tremont and Bruckner. I'm not sure how many more trucks were around but one was enough to get me excited.

Any hope for Tratman Avenue Blaqueknite? I knew that Throgs Neck is served out of Tratman Avenue CO, how come its available in Throgs Neck but not on Tratman Avenue?

Hello, I'm a Field Technican for Verizon
Do you have any information about when Pelham Bay will be lit and ready for orders?

Hello, I'm a Field Technican for Verizon, why the name calling friso09? The workers you see in the street don't decide where Fios is placed. They go by work prints designed by Verizon engineers. Does your block have the poles in either the front or the back yards. Could be the print for your block hasn't been sent out to be worked. Also could be some logistical problem holding things up. Jammmin no word on CO-OP City.

Saw some workers digging in front of my laundromat on Westchester ave near pelham bay park, asked them what they were doing they said they were laying piping for the telephone company.. I said for FIOS???? they said yes, they have to run it underground from Crosby/Westchester avenue to the end of Westchester ave at Pelham bay park becuase the poles are too old to run the fiber up there, asked how long it would take they said 1 month for them, then another crew has to put a tube inside the pipe, then Verizon can run the fiber through the pipe.. figure if all goes well 2-3 months.. hopefully in time for Christmas

Holland Ave & Pelham Pky? That's so close... Will it be available in apt buildings? (holland ave is pretty much all apartment buildings, isn't it?)

reply to ddg4005

I just spoke to a Verizon installer on my block. He said we can expect FiOS on Holland Ave near Pelham Pkwy. by the end of March 2009.

It'll be a while, but I'm looking forward to it being available.

I called Verizon again today (yes I know I'm a pain about Fios) and was told the service "might" be available in early 2009, around January, for the Tremont section of the Bronx. Since the reps never have definite confirmation of CO activations I guess I'll have to wait and see.

So far this is the most promising information I've received from a rep; I hope it's true (it'd be nice to have Fios TV and Internet service for my birthday).

I called Verizon again about Fios in the Tremont section but it's still not available. Right now I'm on the 7.1/768 DSL plan and my up and down speeds are good. I'm still hopeful that we'll see the service sometime soon.

That's a good progress! I believe Throgs Neck is served out of Tratman Avenue CO and I saw them working towards E. Tremont Avenue from Tratman through Lane and Westchester Avenue.

Its too bad I live in Parkchester. we'll probably never get fios here. They still don't even offer dsl in my building. I'm getting tired of dealing with cablevision.

I hope I don't have to wait until 2012 to get Fios internet and TV service. There hasn't been any word on when Tremont will get wired up.
