As much of the country waits with bated breath, New England has claimed yet another
FiOS TV hotspot -- well, almost. Reportedly, the Board of Selectmen in Rowley, Massachusetts granted a cable franchise to Verizon this past Monday, which essentially paves the way for some 1,800 more households in the Bay State to soon receive another option for television delivery. The agreement ensures that the number of Massachusetts communities in which the fiber-based service is available in will grow to 63, but unfortunately, there's no definitive word on when the inhabitants of Rowley will be able to take VZW up on its offers.
