Verizon FiOS to debut in NYC?

Verizon HeadquartersVerizon Communications is hoping to have its FiOS TV service available to customers in New York City within the next two months. This would be a tremendous boon to those who subscribe to cable, as suddenly the choice for providers will increase from solely Time Warner.

From the article: "Verizon spokesman John Bonomo said the city's Franchise and Concession Review Committee had given the green light to the video service, which is delivered along with high-speed Internet over an all-fiber network and is meant to compete with cable television."

Despite this accomplishment, the timeline is not definite.

As someone who lives in the NYC area, I'm hoping this happens sooner rather than later. For too long this region has been lacking an alternative service to cable providers, yet there has been promotion for FiOS all over the place. It's time for a soulless media conglomerate like Time Warner to have some competition from another soulless media conglomerate.
