No, they are not required to build out the state of New Jersey. Only specific townships. The agreement was the state opened up as one entity for the build, not a full build out agreement.

The Union could probably pass this info on to you, and the general public should be able to get the info from their Nj State Legislative Representative.
In NJ Verizon did not attempt to negotiate individual TV franchises, so in the beginning Data and Telephone were all that was available. The Statewide TV Franchise had some stipulations

It`s been awhile since I viewed it
Municipal Buildings within a Fios area receive free basic TV and Internet

The build out has to do with Municipalities over a certain population, this would apply to Urban area like Newark and Jersey City.
Also I believe it covered County Seats as well, as long as they are currently served by Verizon.
There was a date which I am sure has already passed in which Verizon was to start 'fibering' these areas.
