NYC Closer to FiOS TV

It’s times like this I wish I still lived in Brooklyn. It looks like New Yorkers from Staten Island to the Bronx could eventually get Verizon’s FiOS TV service in their homes if regulators and city lawmakers approve. Verizon already offers its fiber to the home broadband service in portions of the five boroughs, but under this plan, 3.1 million homes within the city will have the ability to dump their cable provider for FiOS TV by mid-2014.
