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?

On St Theresa especially there were like 5 large trucks wiring poles 4 weeks ago. every time i ask the verizon guys they say 'Early 2009" Does it mean Feb? March? I am anxious to get this now that i found out i could use my TIVO HD with cablecards supplied by verizon. cant wait.

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.
