Verizon is not currently offering FiOS service within Babylon Village, although it did wire the Town of Babylon several years ago. Last year, the village entered into a non-exclusive ten-year contract with Cablevision, but was unable to negotiate a deal with Cablevision's main competitor, the fiber-optic FiOS.
Verizon spokesperson John Bonomo told Patch that Verizon was not actively pursuing any new contracts with municipalities, and were focused on completing their franchise build-out agreements across Long Island and New York State. The provider is nearing their five-year-completions on many contracts, Bonomo said, which may open the door in the future for new negotiations, but he was unable to provide a timeline for when the situation may change.
