Out of the Blue

We have a landline that's been out since Hurricane Sandy, and when speaking with Verizon today they indicated this condition may persist for months, and it sounds like I may be getting a good deal on FiOS as a result. We'll have to see, because I'm still skeptical that the conditions they are trying to work around actually apply in my case, but it will be pretty cool if they do.

Blue, our apartment complex of 5 buildings, ~3000 apartments in South Brooklyn is also w/o VZ service and they are saying the same thing..."months" until service will be restored.
Our maintenance office had to get new phone numbers from another provider to handle calls from residents.
I'm surprised there's no more public outcry about this incompetence. So much noise about State Island power problems, but nothing about VZ.
