Well then the landlord has approved it then. You should look into it as I saw lots of fiber being pulled in under the BQE going north bound and south bound.during the past summer.

Live on 51 btwn 6th and 7th. No fiber here . It looks like they have all the 40's and 50's hung and lit up to 5th ave. Even Charlies Pizzeria has fios I honestly haven't even seen a truck in the area for a while.

Yippppee just got this email '' Thank you for your recent inquiry about the availability of FiOS TV in your building.

We have negotiated access to your building and the FiOS TV construction process is underway. FiOS will be in your building soon.''

Anyone know how long it takes once they start wiring?

IM on 47th St between 2ND and 3rd for those interested

First thing check to see if the fiber is already in the building or on the pole.

Lucky.

I saw the markings on my street and all that stuff as well, and being one block from the CO, I thought it'd be soon, but alas. They started on the street next to me and moved in the opposite direction, and we still don't have it.
I honestly have no idea when they'll ever bother setting us up, but I finally had to switch to OOL, as I simply could not deal with their crappy DSL anymore.

FIOS installation in progress in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn at Ridge Blvd @ Senator Street. Pole up, trenching completed on Senator west of Ridge, cable pull across back yard poles began last week.

AFAICT, this will only service customers on the two blocks bordered by 68th St & Senator, 3rd Ave to Colonial. No ETA when work will commence for neighboring blocks.

I remember back in the 80's when time warner cable was bringing cable to brooklyn. the cable company didn't take long they wired by avenues and by block to block not skipping avenues and blocks. verizon should hire their contractors so they could finish the job sooner. verizon is wiring by co's. in sunset park my co is 14 ave. i noticed on the permits they are wiring 77 st co which has blocks in sunset park. does anyone know when from 60 street to 39 th street between 5 th and 6 th aves they will start wiring. i know they did up to 5 th ave on these streets. they also did 7 th avenue between these streets. but they skipped 5 th and 6 th avenue. i'm in between. 46 between 4 th and 5 th avenue has it. i am one block away. how frustrating can that be. i hope they dont decide to leave some places without fios. i read a article on internet stating some places may be left out. i spoke to someone at verizon and they said new york will be finished by end of 2015.

After Verizon came and did some random and sporadic work on my block, FiOS finally became available in PLG, Flatbush! Goodbye, Optimum and Dish Network! Just ordered myself a Double Play with Prime HD and 75/35!

@clrana9017:Did they contact you or did you have to call them to get it?

Also, can you post back when they actually install it? I'm curious to know what the lag time between ordering and installation will be like.

The trucks have been running cable in East Flatbush for the past few weeks. They did my block last week, but still no word on when those lines will go live.

You're in the neighborhood just to the north of me (literally 2 blocks south and 3 east), so I'm hoping we're next. Verizon has dragged their feet for so long though I don't want to get my hopes up only to have them dashed.

They left a sticker on my door saying to inquire about FiOS, so I went online and ordered a package because I had a promo code to get $5.00 a month for twelve months.

The installation went relatively smoothly, but I do have some issues that are going to be corrected by a technician on Sunday. My backup battery, for some reason, is not working, which I find weird because it was a fresh install. Also, one of my set-top boxes is not getting a proper signal, so some channels are missing. Some of them have their SD counterparts working properly but their HD versions will not load. Other than that, it was pretty quick and easy.

I wouldn't worry about your neighborhood not getting FiOS. NYC is still under contract under 2014. Believe me, I almost lost hope myself. Now, I am a happy FiOS customer after waiting for it to come for the past eight years.

I could have had it installed two days after they left their calling card, but I chose a week where I could take the day off. So, I delayed my installation by about a week. Also, the fiber hubs weren't up yet, but they went up the day after I got the calling card. It was weird.

How did you determine that your BBU is not working properly? It is only to keepr the dialtone up.

What is on the screen of the channels that you are not getting? Which package are you subscribed to?
