Verizon’s fiber-optic network providing higher speed internet and TV service has been slowly making its way to New York City, but has shown no sign of arriving in Brooklyn Heights — until now. Yesterday, selected houses were left with notices requesting backyard access for Verizon crews to install new telephone polls and replace the existing copper wires with new fiber optic lines and house terminals (previous discussions with repair technicians elicited information that the street lines are already in place, but limited access to the backyard poles has delayed a service rollout). Hopefuly some healthy competition with Time Warner Cable will be available in the near future.
Verizon FiOS finally coming to the Heights?
