I have the same question. I live in Squirrel Hill and have been waiting for some word, any word, on when FIOS is coming to my neighborhood. What is most frustrating to me is that Verizon won't give us a clue as to when we might get it. I have to assume that they don't know themselves.
I read recently that, for economic reasons, Verizon planned to stop or delay trying to extend FIOS, but that seemed to be with respect to areas where they don't already have agreements with local government - Baltimore bring an example. However, perhaps they are also slowing down the process in places where they do have agreements, even if the agreements require them to serve all residents.
I'm on Verizon DSL now and as much as I hate to do it, I might just decide to switch to Comcast as my ISP instead of waiting for FIOS.
