Ooh: Silicon Alley Insider brings word that Verizon just got approval from the NY State Public Service Commission to bring FIOS to NYC. Apparently FIOS TV will launch TV service in the "coming weeks," as "it's already been taking orders in launch neighborhoods." When it was first announced the cable TV-phone-Internet option was coming to town in April, the city said, "This is a historic agreement that when approved for the first time will bring true cable television service competition in each in every home in all five boroughs of New York." It's hoped that FIOS will be available to 30% of NYers by the end of the year.
