You really think Verizon would spend all that time and $$$$ installing FIOS into a privately owned building or housing complex unless they thought people wanted it?
Right now the Bronx is exploding with new FIOS installs, there is so much work there techs are working 7 days a week to keep up with the demand.
People want FIOS, they want a choice. Having a choice creates competition, competition creates better pricing.
It's the filthy slumlords and towns that want their pockets lined with royalties that are the problem here.
SO true my friend. I have the juntion beige box it was installed in less then 3 days and yes most slumlords all they care is pay me the money and shut up, If they could get away with charging you for using your own Air Conditioner legally they would be swimming in money. same goes for heat if they could not offer it unless you pay they would never want the winter to go.
