While many of us
are still twiddling our thumbs waiting for FiOS to take our town by storm, another section
of New Yorkers are getting the opportunity to indulge. Reportedly, Verizon recently "won a video franchise for its FiOS TV service in Buchanan, NY," bringing the total amount of New York communities with FiOS access to 65. Furthermore, the operator is purportedly marketing its FiOS internet service to additional consumers in the state, particularly in parts of Cornwall, Newburgh and Poughkeepsie. Go on, you lucky souls, gloat all you'd like -- we'll just live vicariously through you until our day comes.
