I would think Verizon bean counters would care to tie up 2 techs for
almost an entire day for one house.

Couple of months ago when the Globe had the list of towns Verizon had
applied their spokesman cited the multi-dwelling problem which is why
they did not apply in Boston even though Mumbles asked them to.

When Fios is installed correctly it does blow away cable.
