Brooklyn Still “Waiting4Fios” — Borough President to Host Verizon Rollout Forum


    Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams will be hosting a public forum on Verizon FiOS’ Brooklyn rollout Tuesday, allowing residents and business owners to air their concerns in regards to the service.

    In announcing the forum, Adams emphasized Brooklyn’s need for expanded high-speed telecommunications service, and said city franchises should be held accountable to agreements. A June audit found Verizon had failed to meet its promise to make FiOS available to all New Yorkers.

    The forum will be co-hosted by advocacy group coalition Waiting4FiOS. It will take place November 17 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the community room at the Brooklyn Borough Hall.
