See http://timingblog.brooklynmarathon.com/2014/02/does-anyone-know-status-of-fios-in-bed.html if you cannot read this post properly.

 

Does anyone know the status of FIOS in Bed Stuy? Here's data from Verizon: 

See https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BwXQyWhKLhmBNXJmNFBZdVpMS3c&usp=sharing

 

 
Coverage in Bed Stuy Brooklyn NY
Coverage in Park Slope Brooklyn NY


 

It shows that Park Slope is connected much better than Bed Stuy. We need to advocate for our neighborhood.

It appears that Verizon has a monopoly/contract and they are the only company that can bring FIOS to our neighborhood, but also the contract tells us that they are obligated to bring fiber to some percentages of the homes in New York City.

Sorry, but FiOS is done being built out. They aren't expanding to any other places that don't already offer the service. They've said so several times now.

Is that right? I thought I've seen them mention in many places that they were done. Not the case? And if so, my apologies for the bad info.

They must complete any obligations they have.  NYC is one of them.  I wouldn't be surprised if they invoke any options they have to terminate any agreements, but its not clear in NY what level they must meet.
