Brick,NJ- Verizon Fios availability?

Hi-

I live off of Mantoloking Road in Brick,NJ and was wondering if we'll ever get Fios? Almost four years ago Verizon had contractors putting in conduit in my neighborhood, but it's still not available. I'm not far from the 7-Eleven on Mantoloking Road if that helps.

I believe that I'm serviced by the CO on Drum Point Road (Osbornville?). I've heard that certain areas of Brick (Drum Point, Baywood) have Fios, but when I call or check online it still says that it isn't available in my part of town (Breton Woods). I've had it up to here with Comcast and would switch over to Fios if it was available.

Is the Directv w/ Verizon DSL bundle a good deal?

Are you in a buried area? It is all around you but if your particular area is not built, it will likely never be.

FiOS is available right up to Cedar Bridge Road, which is off of Mantoloking Road. Cedar Bridge Road appears to be the demarcation line for now. I live off of Van Zile Road and know that area is NOT wired for FiOS.

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.
