The Virginia General Assembly has
drafted a law and passed it on to the Governor to sign on July 1st. This will help ease Verizon's pain in deploying FIOS
in that state by making it very easy to get carriage agreements, but not as easy as Texas. FIOS
is popping up all over
and it's well received for
good reason. It offers very high speed Internet access and great quality HD!
Don't run out and call them
just yet, it can take some time for this to be available in your area. You will know it's close when you start to see
Verizon FIOS pizza boxes.
*Verizon is currently in the process of acquiring AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
