All of my friends and coworkers are getting FIOS in their respective counties and I’ve got a sinking feeling it’s going to be forever before it hits the city. Verizon has a good thing going by getting in to the city with it. They can release some of the stress that they have on their DSL telco connections as well as provide a good strong competitive service against Comcast. Most people who have the dish are satisfied with the service but want many of the options that Verizon can offer without the additional third party cost.
Considering how close many of the residential situations are in the city, they can provide a great number of new customers if they’d just got off their lazy rumps and get in to the city.
Now on the flip side, if Baltimore City is the hold up than consider the options. FIOS is a cheaper form of internet with greater benefits which will also provide competition and lower rates. This could help many of the lower income citizens of Baltimore City save money which would in tern provide more expendable cash on needs that they have.
