I don't know if I believe them. They do not give you any areas or zipcodes where true high speed FIOS is available, they make you give them the exact address and then they tell you what is available.

Does anyone know for sure that FIOS is available at its highest speeds in their own neighborhood, or know of a place?

Also, Verizon likes to say that their SERVICES are available, meaning in some places there is "high speed internet" which means DSL, which means super slow to those of us with FIOS wishing to keep the same zippy speeds.

This becomes a quality of life issue these days, especially for work.

I don't think FIOS is available anywhere in Denver. Just Century Link and Comcast

No FIOS, there is a company called Forethought.net that's doing Gigabit fiber now, but it's still very limited deployment. A couple fancy multi tenant condo buildings and that's about it I think.

I wonder why they claim there IS FIOS in denver? They do admit that some of it is only DSL speeds, but they don't tell you where the FIOS is. Maybe at Denver Verizon headquarters only?

I was in one of the first areas of the country to get FIOS (back in PA), about 7-8 years ago. Prior to its availability, one couldn't miss the ~10 ft high reels of orange tubing (which protects the fiber cable) by the curbs everywhere, and the installers either burying it or putting up on the poles. I would expect the same would be necessary anywhere they go.

Verizon has been aggressively installing fiber in Highlands ranch and along south c470 for months. I see them out there drilling sideways and installing orange tubing every day. Last i checked service hadn't started.

i'm sure its just part of a bluff in order for comcast to pay off verizon wireless before they pull out

Perhaps the install was this?

That's CenturyLink, not Verizon pulling all the fiber. Overheard CenturyLink people talking about it at a lunch place. I work down the street from the CenturyLink Mountain Region HQ

Do you have a link to this claim? Verizon is not a player in the Denver area at all as far as I know.
