Union-Backed Campaign Asks Verizon "Where's My FiOS" [telecom]

For years, it's been obvious that Verizon lacked interest in expanding its FiOS fiberoptic pay-TV and Internet service beyond its existing footprint, even though the company had not fulfilled its promises in areas like New Jersey and New York City to make high-speed broadband available to everyone. And in January, Verizon officially extinguished any hope that FiOS would be bringing competition to new markets anytime soon. But a new campaign organized by the Communications Workers of America is asking consumers to demand that Verizon deliver the service it so proudly touts on TV.

The "Where's My FiOS?" campaign points out that Verizon promised in 2008 that it would bring FiOS to all of New York City, where Time Warner Cable is by far the dominant player, by 2014. However, many parts of the city still lack access to a second option for broadband and Verizon doesn't seem to be in any hurry to deliver.
