Verizon's FiOS TV makes its western New York debut

Darren Murph

Western New York, FiOS. FiOS, western New York. That's right -- not even two full months after Verizon's FiOS TV took New York City by storm, the service has officially gone live in the western park of the state. We've known this was coming for quite some time, but it feels oh-so-good to know that some 60,000 households in the greater Buffalo area can now phone up Verizon and order up its fiber-based TV programming, high-speed internet and digital phone services. Among the first communities to get served are parts of Amherst, Hamburg, Orchard Park and Tonawanda; expect additional communities in the region to get gifted "within the next few weeks." Any western New Yorkers mulling the switch?
