Are you still waiting for FIOS (Fiber-Optic Television) to reach your neighborhood? According to Verizon, the service should be available to all Southborough residents by the end of the year.
Selectman Bill Boland reported at a board meeting last month that he had recently met with representatives from Verizon. They told him all aerial lines have been installed, while the built-out of buried lines is about 50% complete.
Cable Television Chairman Paul Ferguson told me Verizon doesn’t report on deployment by neighborhood, so the town doesn’t know exactly which neighborhoods have FIOS and which don’t. But he said completing the build-out by the end of the year would be within the timeframe specified by the franchise license negotiated with the town.
My neighborhood has had FIOS for nearly two years. What about yours?
