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.)
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....
