Reader AW was nice enough to pass along news of a fence banner along Half Street, SE, just south of 70 I that is shouting "1st Community in DC to Offer Verizon FIOS!" (This is the high-speed fiber optic TV/internet service that is available throughout the 'burbs.) I went to verizonfios.com, and did some address searching via the Check Availability page, and got positive results for 70 I, 100 I, and 1000 New Jersey (Capitol Hill Tower). However, if you click one of the addresses and continue along, you're then told that FIOS TV isn't yet available for that address, but FIOS high-speed Internet is. (As I posted back in June, JPI has been marketing 70 and 100 I as "pre-wired" for FIOS.)
UPDATE: Read this entry's comments to see that, not surprisingly, "First Community to Offer FIOS" isn't quite what it seems just yet. But if there's any neighborhood in the city where the infrastructure work could already have been done to get fiber in place, it'd be the one that's being entirely rebuilt from scratch....

this is pretty big news. if they've managed to run their infrastructure into the city in one place, they darn well better be able to do it into others!

When I went online, FIOS appeared as if it were available, but when I called the company, they told me there was no FIOS yet available in DC.

It is sort of misleading when you do the address search. What they really mean is that they have Verizon DSL. Here is a better site that will tell you when FIOS will be around.

For VA an MD they tell you what streets where it is being installed during what month. The fact they dont have any FIOS construction news is not a good sign.

It takes a good two years to get a neighborhood hooked up. One year for the main cables to be stubbed at individual neighborhoods and another year to connect the neighborhood. It may be faster with new developments that already have fiber running through them.

It is my understanding that Verizon and the DC government are still negotiating a permit for Verizon to begin offering FIOS in DC. Several months ago, the mayor commented that he thought they would reach agreement sometime in early 2009. It would not surprise me that -- with all of the new development -- Verizon has already placed the fiber optic infrastructure necessary to provide the service in our neighborhood. Hopefully, once the agreement is signed, all they will need to do is flip the switch. Operative word: Hopefully.
