Verizon aims FiOS TV at Western New York

Darren Murph

Though it's easy to throw stones at New York in envy of it being heavily covered by fiber-based TV services (comparatively speaking, of course), those residing in the western half of the state have felt just as left out -- until now. Verizon has announced that it finally landed an agreement authorizing it to offer FiOS TV service to residents of the Village of Hamburg. In case you couldn't tell, the aforementioned locale is the first municipality in western New York to grant the carrier a video franchise, and if no one on the New York State Public Service Commission has any gripes, folks in the area can look forward to seeing the rollout begin this summer. Did we mention we're envious of New York?
