Re: FIOS scheduled for Bronx NY yet?

So a friend just got fios on my old block sent me pics to brag here's the kicker his family owns the building (6 family)and i asked him if they had to give verizon permission or sign anything to allow them into the building and he claims they didn't have to. lol this is just great my mother who still lives on that block can now get fios and i can't I am happy for my boy who like eddy had to suffer for years with verizon dsl yuk

Had you tried calling them and hitting "if you have received fios in the mail press this number" last time i did thats when i received the email fios was in my block but we are working with your landlord to receive access.

Ok, since we are talking about fios buildout, any luck of them turning it on in Brookhaven? I sadly think I know the answer. It just stinks because they already installed fios on our block they just have to flip a switch.

I know what you mean bro. They are the only road block to Fios being all over the hood. One of my friends got Verizon this weekend and we been downloading movies lightning fast. it makes my DSL feel slower then Dial up.

Hey Fatal

yes they are loving the lube CV is giving then because they don't let anybody slide in..pardon my pun lol. Well the number for Fios is

for new customers (866)761-6792
New customers concierge (888)715-3291
Deal & packages (888)858-0822

I believe the first two are the best bet since you might be a potential new customer.

Thats not the worse part Fatal. The worse part like i previously stated. I send to their office a package with the Direct tv/Dish contracts,signatures and other info that the state requires. Well they say the first one never got there. So i reprinted all the signatures,papers etc.Send it with signature delivery and other post office insurance. I call then 2 weeks later and guess what they say they never received so I told then thats funny because so and so sign for it. Then they told me hold on;and bang the package appeared so they told me give me a week. I replay nah take 3 instead. Then they came back saying the direct tv guy never call him(mind you the direct tv guy was in front of me while i was making the call so I put him on speaker) our building manager was caught and the direct tv guy told him you got it whats the answer. My building management guy couldn't answer because he started to say he was busy in a meeting etc etc. 3 weeks later we got a memo saying that we can't put the satellites in the roofs because of water damage etc but that we can put it on the common areas..the stair case. I was like WTF is up with this had this crap had happen in my beloved Mass I know the landlord would be in big trouble. Sorry for the super long post.

So what happen on your end Fatal? on my case i know is my slumlords since they been blocking anybody else from coming into my building. I did manage to get the signature of 95% of all tenants and yet he blocked direct tv and dish. Hell this guy is a scumlord because he even blocked the petition for us to get new windows but the other properties he has they got new windows a year ago.

its the landlord`s that hold it up.

not all the time i got an email from verizon saying they had negotiated access to my building and construction would begin soon this was over a year ago and I'm still waiting but in eddys cause it probably is his scumlord can't you get everyone in the building to demand fios eddy?
