YIPEEEEEEEEEE!

Recommended Posts

The Verizon contracted people are drilling out my sidewalk to lay the fiber as we speak!  I don't even mind all the noise! LOL  They said I could get service by the end of the year but that sounds like a CYA thing.  That's 6 months from now!  What has been everyone's experience in time of fiber lay in street to actual FIOS service?

TIA

My experience was pretty good.  They started laying fiber in my neighborhood some time in April.  They started sending out the packages for service the first week of June.  I signed up and got installed on June 22nd.  So I'd say it was 2 months from the first trucks in my neighborhood until I was on Fios.  Here are my posted speeds as of today.

I'd say about a month or two from my experience.  I saw the signs about the "Fiber to the Premise" a couple of weeks before they actually started working on my street, then a couple of weeks after they were gone I was finally able to get my piece of internet heaven :)  Welcome to the forums Pegster, I know the wait must be absolutely KILLING you  muwahahaha.....  Don't worry, it is DEFINETLY DEFINETLY DEFINETLY worth it :)
