July 18, 2007

Yesterday my neighborhood was invaded in force by Verizon. I'm a sucker for anybody building anything, so naturally I pulled over and chatted for a few seconds with one of the crews

Yup, they're pulling fiber.

Update - Thursday, July 19: the pole behind my house now has a terminal. The crew told me it usually takes 6-8 weeks from completion of a neighborhood and FIOS going live. Meantime, a note arrived in the mail asking me to sign up in advance for FIOS Internet, which would also put my current POTS (plain old telephone service) on to the same fiber link. No word on TV, though.
