Do you have any windows that face generally south and are not close to being blocked by tall buildings (i.e. can you see sky about 33% up from the horizon?). If so, it is POSSIBLE IF you are willing to have the antenna inside your apartment, pressed up against the window. Your building can say nothing about you doing this... it IS actual regulations that give you this right.
AFAIK, RCN has done no wiring at all after 9/11... so they are static on customers since that point in time. My building actually signed a deal with them to have them bring it into my building right before 9/11, and we heard from them it won't happen because they stopped all new wiring. The deal is about to expire and we still don't hear boo from them.
We all thought FiOS was going to be an answer... but it seems they halted all new runs of fiber right after they got their franchise agreement signed. One would THINK they'd start again at some point, but I am very skeptical as they seem more interested in new markets (like Philly) than in actually serving current markets.
I'm actually contemplating a complaint to DOITT... they publicly stated they'd have 60% of Manhattan wired by the end of 09, and I think it';s more like 10%... or the original areas only. Not to mention that even in those areas, many folks can still NOT get it.
