Personally, Cablevision sucks ass. I deal with 3/768 Verizon DSL on purpose.

Pelham Bay is served out of Tratman CO so yes your connect would likely come from there. No idea on speeds, I'm waiting on Fios myself.

Not sure.... So i will be served out of the Tratman Central Office? wHAT KIND OF SPEEDS can i expect? Close to advertised speed? I am thinking i should stay with the cablevision internet service. And use Fios only for TV and Phone service.

Great news for all you residents of pelham Bay in the Bronx. i called fios today and asked if it was available because i have seen dozens of trucks lately. The cust service lady said no but then said she would check something out. She checked with engineering and hallelujah it is available for ordering february 28th. She even said there was a new promo coming out next week to promote the new availability. I am in seventh heavan but i think i just going for the video and telephone not internet unless the promo is that good.

That triangle area behind Lehman H.S. has Fios. My friend lives there and he just signed up. I think its Edwards, Ellison, and the rest behind there.

Okay today february 3rd there were verizon trucks up and down the side streets like mine Hobart ave and all the side streets east of the Hutchinson river Parkway. could it be any day now?? To be honest with you i am really most interested in the video services because my Optonline internet is just fine. Also i just started using the new Boost Mobile unlimited plan at $50 dollars per month. So in reality all i need is video and internet. Does Fios offer a "Double Play Deal" I might go for that and just use my boost mobile phone as permanent phone.

I've been looking all over the Bronx, since I do a lot of driving for my job, and there are boxes on almost every street I've been on. So hopefully they turn everything on soon. I can't wait for that 20/20 connection.

Just finished talking to a FIOS Customer Rep. They knew what they were talking about and not a Foreigner in India. This Cust Rep said that the timing from actual street wiring to being able to order FIOS is about 3 months. So in my areas case i am looking at say 6-8 weeks wait to order FIOS. I plan to use 2 Tivo HD boxes. However i was a little dissapointed that they do not use Multistream cards. I would have to "Rent" 2 cards per box at $3.99 per month. I guess i can use the multimedia DVR for the other 2 televisions in the home. Also checked the channel lineup and holy cow does anyone have time to see the 200 or more sd and HD movie channels? Anyone know how long the install is? 5,6,9 hours?

I'm in Throggs Neck as well, FiOS is now available. I'll have to think about getting it. Waiting to see what Cablevision will offer once DOCSIS3 goes live.

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.

ur wrong because they did the yellow guide rope 4 weeks ago and verizon is coming to my house 2morrow to install it...
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.
