Verizon Fios is here in Elmhurst Queens 11373

well today i was a bit sad but i made the switch over to Fios since i live in the broadway section a block from corona ave but

in Elmhurst queens there is quiet the few promotions going around for a one yr or two yr plan they also have a no contract agreement but rates flux if you go that route

i made a switch from RCN to Fios
RCN was giving me 78/11 taken from RCN test site (modem data info)
and verizon said we give you 75/35

sooo my cousin who is account holder from my previous isp got sold
so we are in a two yr bind saving 30 dollars on initial sight of email confirmation with pricing including taxes and first time payment

and looking at my old isp bill i save about 30 dollars

so tell me how is the service from your PoV
is it torrent friendly ?

Service has been great since I signed up two years ago. Verizon always over provisioned your speed package in order for you to get the actual subscribed speed. As a case in point, during hurricane Sandy I experienced no type of issues with the service while everyone else who used other service did encounter down time. Also given that my electricity never went down.

apparently, even people within the same zip code are not covered by the same central office. i just learned that my CO has not been upgraded for fiber service and therefore is not available in my area yet

I just had a 24 yr veteran field tech at my home today in Flushing. I asked about Elmhurst since my mom lives there. He said that most of Elmhurst is wired North of Queens Blvd, and that they have a lot of customers there. He thinks they will get to South of QB in the coming year, which is where my mom lives. He sounded like he knew his stuff, as he was pretty candid with me. So there is hope!

Just a suggestion, don't be afraid to ask a Field Tech for his cell number for an update on FIOS availability.
We all have Verizon provided work cell phones and most of us are very interested in giving out that info or trying to find out from local management for a potential customer.
The builds are going slow, because of some manpower issues due to retirement,declaring surpluses and not hiring in almost 10 years.
