Verizon maybe available but it may be quite sometime to get to you. Living in Loudonville Fios was never available even though down the street from us had it. Then 3 years ago, Fios came down from the Main Street of Albany-Shaker Road and the Fios team walkers came to offer Fios. Many although looking at it did not jump on it. In fact my wife and I waited 2 years, after our neighbors used it, and their terms were over the pricing was so high that they dropped Fios for cable.

this neighborhood has mostly retirees and pensioners who own their own homes and are financially strong but the higher costs still made them jump back to cable.

i however just took internet only and yes it’s 4 times more expensive than what we paid cable but it’s 100’s times faster than what we used before.

i would have your home builder install for both services just Incase it does get to your neighborhood. 

Good Luck

I have heard ordering just phone service can help get your house in database.

Try checking with twc to see if they can offer service.

A lot of providers validate addresses against 911 database.

If twc can't offer service either, it may be because addresses aren't loaded yet.

Do you see any Verizon boxes or vault covers in your neighborhood?
