Re: FIOS scheduled for Bronx NY yet?

well , i live at marble hill and verizon is working here, they are installing FiOS according to what one of the truck guys told me, but they working at a very slow rate, and i dont even know if they are installing the cables on the poles, or they are waiting for ConEdison to dig up the street for them.

Hey guys

summer here and nothing yet when it comes to door to door salesman or notice of Fios . Good God this is taking forever. Anyways friend of mine was in KC and he was using Google fiber at his brothers house and he was blown away at the speed and channel guide. He has Xfinity and once he got home he was disappointed with the speed and channels. He was a huge Xfinity fanboy until he tried Google fiber he wish he could get it and I told him try Fios at your mother in laws place so he's looking forward to visiting now after I told him you can get faster speeds with Fios. So he will give me the his verdict this weekend.

Tell me about it. All they do around my neighborhood is mark the ground where the utility lines run and leave.

I have seen these trucks all week, and they are up and down the street and around the block. I would ask them what they are doing but I can never find them in the trucks. Are these the Fiber Trucks?

These are photos of Verizon installing the main FiOS connection through a manhole to the Tiebout Central Office. The guys that was working on the connection told me that the main fiber cable originates somewhere from Ryer Av. These photos take place at or near the Tiebout CO. I live on webster ave between 184 and 187 streets and one of the guys told us that we should be getting FiOS by July/August of this year.

Ed find a private house address on or around your block and pop it into the FIOS availability page »www.verizon.com/home/shop/shopping.htm

No telephone poles in the area vintage?Thats how mine came into the building although for the longest time I thought in was in the ground because 3 or 4 years back they had dug a small trench all along Williamsbridge Rd.
I take it there are no poles in your area.

Nope, No telephone poles in my area. Just like areas of Riverdale, verzion dug trenches. I wonder if verizon can put up no parking signs? Because they come up my street and cant do any work. Too many double park cars, or trucks supplying a small grocery.

Eddy120876 I'm still thinking that your problem is your landlord and his refusal to let Verizon in the building.Like I said we had to get enough people in the building to sign a petition and ask our area congressman to intervene .
