Years ago, Verizon announced they are no longer expanding the FiOS footprint. They are continuing to build out areas within their previously committed footprint.
If you live within a build-out footprint (such as NYC), they should get to you eventually. If you don't live within the footprint, you will not be getting FiOS from Verizon. There is nothing an individual can do to change when FiOS will be installed within a build-out footprint or get Verizon to expand the footprint.
