Fios - $1,000 per household?

February 28, 2008

After it seems like an eternity of waiting, is finally starting the process to install Fios on my street.  They have most of my home town of Orchard Park, NY strung with fiberoptic cable from pole to pole, but those of us that are serviced by underground cables were last in line.

Anyhow, now I understand why Verizon plans on spending an average of $1,000 per household to install Fios.  First all the utility companies (gas, water, telephone, cable...) all have to mark/flag their lines.  (Our front lawn looks like a miniature golf course)  Then the Verizon guys come out and....sit in the truck.  So far this truck has been parked in front of my house for two days with at least two guys sitting in it.  God knows what they are doing, but there they sit - idling the engine.

$1,000 per household?  Verizon has spent that so far just in fueling this idling truck.
