[Business] Re: FIOS scheduled for Bronx NY yet?

They pulled two optical cables down from the floors,one yellow one black(I would guess the color difference is to differentiate the 2 sides of the building in case the have to trouble shoot).
When I have time tomorrow I'll try to get some pictures.

The thick black one by itself is fiber from street

the black and yellow cables go up the stairs to all the breakout boxes,
Here a few photos of the cables at the main board down in the basement.

They are just finishing the wiring to each apartment and the next crew is going to be pulling the line thru the pipe and I guess also put in what ever fixtures are needed in each breakout box on each floor.
The still have to bring the fiber on the pole from across the street to the building.
The worker I was talking to thinks it will be a few weeks and they'll send a sales Rep to give a demo in the foyer and I guess take orders.
I'm almost there!

I was able to order my FiOS a week before it was even advertised as available in our complex. Just keep checking the Get FiOS website, and the moment your address shows as FiOS Available, you're ready to order.

Eddy120876 I know the feeling.When they started installing FIOS back about 6 years ago it was not available I would have jumped at the chance to get it ,but it wasn't available but for a few places.I just forgot about it and was happy I had at least a high speed connection(Optimum Online.)
It hasn't been smooth going in this building.I had the line coming in to the apartment changed because I was getting on and off connections and the line going out side the window had the shield all frayed.I still get problems and I'm tired of calling the techs out as there have been many other tenants complaining.
My internet connection drops out,my TV connection loses channels or breaks up on certain channels,sound with no video,or video with no sound.Or it just freezes and I have to reboot.
Then at times it will be ok for a month or more.
Think theres to many people on my node as the speeds have been all over the place.
I'll be glad to have a change.

yeah those same issues i had with CV and their stupid practices of not holding on the payment for a day or two. After what they did to my mom i said enough and i cut the service completely. They still come and visit asking her to comeback and i tell then HELL NO! . When they ask me why not i tell then what they did to a loyal customer. Disconect her in the middle of a blizzard. They couldn't hold her service until monday morning.

I saw a couple of Verizon Fios trucks on W235st Riverdale Ave. Installing a pretty thick cable underground.

vintage I'm not quiet sure but are there telephone poles in your neighborhood?
I was under the impression that they laid fiber in the ground near me quiet a few years back but I was wrong ,In my neighborhood its still up on the poles.

Interesting. This is the first time i saw a picture of this conduit type. It looks rather nice.

It almost looks like a protective cover till they get all the equipment mounted on the plywood board .
Also wondering if they will build a wall and put a locked door to keep people away from all this equipment.Everything for the cell tower is right next to this and its all open to the public.

The large wire by it self is the fiber coming in from the street.
The 2 taped together are lines going to each side of the building.

So perhaps Bedford Park will finally see Fios availability?

They haven't done much inside but I did notice they mounted that big white thing in the picture on a bracket at the top of the plywood board.
They were working out side with 3 trucks,one with a bucket.The one with the bucket took the fiber line that was just looped around (probably 50+feet)and bought it down to the back of this truck that had some special equipment in it.Not sure what they were doing there.
Anyone know what kind of equipment they need in the basement ,say like a panel or is everything inside that big white contraption and it goes right up to each apartment?

Most likely they will put a panel on that board that is where all apts connection will go to .

If I get a chance I'll take a picture.What I was talking about in my previous post about the trucks being around the corner of our building where the fiber comes in off the pole.
The had taken the rolled up fiber line that was hanging on the pole and I never saw what they were doing with it when they brought it down to the truck.Now I see up on the pole a black plastic inclosure very much like the white inclosure I took pictures of and posted a little while back that is in the basement .

Took a few pictures this morning.This is what they put up close to the pole where the fiber enters the building on Sacket Ave.
Sorry for the quality as I was half asleep early this morning.
This was done sometime Friday.

Looks like a splice box .... not the distribution terminal you're looking for (something like this: »www.tvcinc.com/downloads/EVO-550-EN.pdf )

That single wire u see on that black casing goes to the distribution hub to the co then there should be a box somewhere mounted near by
