No crappy Commonwealth here. In terms of Allentown - Easton - Bethlehem.

Are we looking 07 or 08?

A Verizon rep at Best Buy in
whitehall, pa told me that FIOS is being promoted so that people know about the product, and that the more people let them know they want it, the faster they install it.
She the rep said that it might be in allentown, pa within 6 months to 1 year.

lehigh valley is verizon. im surprised verizon has not started there yet. lehigh valley has a ton of one way cable service from rcn and service electric in that area. the brite side is both rcn and service electric is upgrading this year. expect a lot of construction from them. the work has already started in the north and they will be working down to coppersburg

Corning would be more appropriate-but that is in NY

so why exactly doesnt verizon do anything in the lehigh valley coppersburg and north. people would kill for it up there. some of copperburg still has one way from rcn and service electric. hell get outside of coppersburg in a one way service area and the picture is unwatchable on channels above 76. of course where service electric is two way they do a hell of a job. personally i think they have one of the best lineups in the usa.

lol, totally depends where in the valley you are.

About 5 days ago a dsl tech told me I could be right when I asked him if it would be about 10 years for fios for me.

Don't forget, the valley is pretty big. What, a couple hundred square miles at least. Even if parts get it, most will not.

I agree with others though, I don't understand why we don't have it yet. RCN doesn't care about 1/2 its customers, and service doesn't seem much better from those I've talked to. Verizon could pick this place clean.

according to verizon everyone will get it. coppersburg up to allentown and bethlem have a very big population per mile. im also sure they would cleanup up there. but maybe thats why rcn and service electric is upgading.

Dang! I use to live 1,100 "wire-feet" from that CO in Kuhnsville (had DSL out of that CO)... Moved to Whitehall a few years ago... hope they get here soon (getting tired of RCN ).

Im not sure if anyone notices but in Allentown if you look at some poles you will notice some cable loops. Im not sure if this is Verizon or the cableo's (RCN - SE) putting this up. Im thinking this is Verizon preppin but those loops have been up all winter.

I havent seen anything yet on Verizon FiOS build out, however I do see cable loops on poles throughout Allentown but they have been there all winter.
