Not to step across the line again (learned my lesson before) but - Falcon is available in a limited area in peyton/falcon. They are going into the first phase of Banning Lewis Ranch and they announced that they are going to build into Flying Horse Ranch. That's it. They claimed they were building N of Platte, W of academy, E of Union and S of Austin Bluffs when the franchise was passed a year ago, but a recent phone call over there said that area was "at least 18 months away if ever" (quote from call center agent in August 2007).
Finally, an exceptionally toned down shot over the bow - look very closely at what you are promised before taking the leap (provided you even live in one of these areas). I have done some pretty detailed comparisons of DTV/Qwest, Dish, Falcon, Porchlight and Comcast - if you truly put apples-to-apples and compare price (including comparable packages, additional boxes, HD, HD/DVRs), install fees, channels (SD and HD), internet speed, service, taxes, features (VOD, internet speed, Voip structure, calling features), benefits etc you will find that marketing is exactly that, a bit of a game. And that will end my *very* measured response
