Verizon FiOS required to be available for everyone in Rosslyn by June 2016

Under the franchise agreement between Arlington County and Verizon, Verizon is required to make FiOS available to everyone in Arlington by June 2016. According to the Cable Administrator’s Report presented to the Arlington Information Technology Advisory Commission tonight, FiOS currently reaches 92.6% of the County. Buildout is continuing in Crystal City, Barcroft, and Alexandria wirecenters.

Nonetheless, Rosslyn's historically important Westmoreland Terrace Condominiums still lacks FiOS availability.Westmoreland Condos signed a license agreement for FiOS with Verizon in the spring of 2008. Verizon has not followed up on that agreement. FiOS is still not available to Westmoreland residents.

The Ode Street Tribune is investigating this matter further. The Tribune seeks reports from other Rosslyn residents also lacking FiOS service.

Complain about Verizon's lack of responsiveness to the county cable administrator. Worked for our condominium. And Verizon spells it FiOS.
