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?)

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.

i live on the west side of the bronx 225th under riverdale and today saw verizon workers painting the ground with construction marks. there were also workers in man holes. i would like to know do they install fios underground.

I still haven't seen any trucks running fiber underground in my neighborhood. After speaking with a few Verizon reps by phone I get the impression that it'll be awhile before my area sees Fios.

Still, Verizon may suddenly launch a full-court press since the television franchise has been approved by the PSC. It's also possible that the fiber is already laid but the COs haven't been tweaked yet. I'll keep my eyes and ears open.

All right, I just spoke to a couple of guys on Continental Ave. and they said that right now they're running fiber optic cable in Throgs Neck (not Pelham Bay). They did not give me a timeframe for this neighborhood yet.

Lots of activity on Wilkinson avenue between the Bruckner and Westchester avenue. Seen a few parked Verizon trucks on the street the last few days. If i run into a tech i will ask if its Fios
(Lines would be underground, all utilities are underground on the block)

reply to Network Guy

The northern sections of the bronx bordering Westchester already have FIOS, the Layout would be to target the neighborhoods that are easiest to install first ( primarily single family neighborhoods)
Ive seen it on 216th street & Jerome

I see a lot of digging going on the street (Tratman Avenue) starting from the CO. I should guess they are laying the fiber. Maybe I will ask one of the worker and confirm
