Yes, he went up on the roof to run the fios cable from the pole to my apartment. He also went in the basement to disconnect the ole pots phone line (that depends on how your phone wiring)

I'm on Woodward Avenue a few blocks from I.S. 93. I've seen Verizon working on the utility poles many times now but their service isn't still up and running.

that might be a problem with building management not allowing fios/verizon to install the fios stuff. I think the CO is still on the corner of gates ave and fairview ave which means you should be pretty close and should of gotten it by now. Check with your landlord to see if they were contacted by verizon. Did you also try calling up verizon and asking if fios is available, their site may not be update to date

Oddly for me, whenever i checked the website it always used to say fios not available for my address. Yet, when i called them on how to lower my phone/dsl bundle price i was given an upgrade to fios triple play which make me eligible for fios. It wasn't until a few days after i ordered fios that the website finally updated to show that fios is in my area/building

In NY area I got one when I went to GPON for the 150/65 package from BPON & 35/35 package.

As for Patt2K, the performance of it is flawless, no issues with it since it was installed back in July.

Interesting that you pointed that out when you called "them" , I actually went on CHAT and was asking for services then by accident I checked fios site and it said fios is avaliable like 2-3 days later, I always thought those chat reps are useless.

Give that a try !

I suddenly feel ill.
Mind listing the speeds available to you and pricing?
I want nothing more than to be done with TWC.

They've been doing that a lot in my area as well. 15/5 runs at 25/5 solid. It USED to be 20/5.

I'm I suppose to see HD BOX Rental fee @ 6.99$?

this bumps the bill to 86.99+tax which is 90$ it's still not bad

Any other conveniently omitted fees on verizon monthly bills?
Not sure if I'll go with a double or triple play package, single service pricing absolutely makes no sense.

Checked online a few hours after an online chat session and it's now available. Seems the price went up $5 since last month. -_-
Off to make an order.

Yeah and it seems it was a typo on my address.
Fios is available on the first floor but just not my apartment. 1L.
I gotta get on the phone and see what's going on.

Debating on whether to make the switch. TWC is offering me 30/5 for $50.
If I were to make the switch to FiOS I'd most likely go with 50/25 internet & phone for $75 a month cause it's the only bundle there that makes any real sense. Decisions, decisions.
