Sorry if I sidetracked, HOW do I post a new thread? Seriously, the web design is HORRENDOUS! I can't find the simple button "NEW" or "NEW THREAD".

????

Thanks.

I'm not your bro, and that just means there are 2 of you with bad info.

According to your own posts, those yellow ropes were run on your block on 8/18/08, over 4 months ago.

No one is wrong when quoting their experience. It takes @ a year to build out a CO. If your fiber is run first, it can easily take 6 months before they sell it. At the end of the deploy, you will be able to get it much sooner after the fiber is run. What's happening on your block, is not the rule, by which you declare people wrong.

Just because they are getting the Fiber doesn't mean it will be turned on next week, It will probably still be months before you can order. Getting the Fibre up is just the first step in the process.

I live in Woodlawn and i have Fios in my home. It took 6+ months after the Fibre went up on my block before I could order.

I don't think it will be this long especially since they are working much faster because of the TV now being available.

But it will still take some time, I'm guessing by February you will probably be able to order in your home, and me in my store

I also saw rolls of fiber above the mailbox on Continental and Westchester (and also slightly up the block where the record store used to be). Interestingly enough, the guy that I talked with over the phone said that none of the addresses on my block are pending (within the 30-day window of FiOS activation) yet.

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.

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.
