Will Verizon make FIOS available to everyone in New York City?
The availability of Verizon Fios in many parts of New York City is still an issue, according to a detailed story by Patrick McGeehan today in the New York Times, link here.
There seems to be a big disagreement with the City over what Verizon had promised in 2008, and what having the service “pass” means.
On the other hand, some companies, especially Google, are aggressively marketing super broadband in a few select, often smaller cities in the South and Midwest.
The question is important if someone intends to move into the City, something I have contemplated in order to have more contacts for my music and other media, at some point in the future, but it would have to be in an outer borough (Yankees, or Mets).
