When I first checked for FiOS availability here at the Fairfield, it was a no go. I was a little disappointed, but I figured it was because I was living in an apartment building. But last week I checked for FiOS in my new house and it’s it not available there either. What’s up with that?

Frankly, I’m not sure that I’d switch. The FiOS HDTV signal is supposed to be better because it’s less compressed than Cablevision/Optimum, but getting FiOS means dealing with the Verizon pit of despair for billing, service and technical support.

I did some research and found that Verizon came to a deal for the FiOS service with the Town of Babylon in 2008. Is there a separate agreement they need to reach with our little village?

Anyone know what the real deal is? Come on, fess up!
