Verizon promised to build FiOS to every residence in Philadelphia by February 2016, but the company won?t tell the city how many homes and apartments still can?t get FiOS service. The city has reached out directly to residents with the plea: tell us if you can?t get FiOS.
Verizon was supposed to deliver FiOS access to everyone in Philadelphia in exchange for a city-wide franchise agreement ? a deal similar to the one Verizon made in New York, where it also broke its promise to build out its all-fiber service.

Verizon?s statewide negligence results in broken poles, sagging cables, ungrounded conduit, and abandoned equipment. The PUC has received thousands of complaints of inadequate service.

Mayor of Pittsburgh Bill Peduto is increasing the pressure against Verizon for failing to build FiOS service to the entire city after it promised to do so in exchange for a lucrative city-wide franchise agreement in 2009.

Mayor Bill Peduto has charged Verizon with failing to build FiOS service to the entire city after it promised to do so in exchange for a lucrative city-wide franchise agreement.
Verizon?s systemic neglect of telephone infrastructure leads to broken poles, sagging cables, ungrounded conduit, and abandoned equipment that pose hazards to public safety.
In some cities, Verizon ignores legislative and contractual buildout requirements; in others, refuses to build FiOS at all, while letting traditional landline network deteriorate everywhere
