Useful input here.

To the first response, they can't get Vze Fios.  You know, it's in the
one of those remote places called midtown manhattan.   Apparently it was
just settled by the Anglos.

The rep wouldn't even discuss DSL, saying essentially it was junk.

But I assume ethernet also terminates in the CO, but what do you mean by
"close" since relatively speaking, everything is pretty 'close' in
Manhattan.  Could you be more specific?
