The imminent announcement about wider coverage of Verizon's symmetrical FiOS that was teased last week has arrived, and it's pretty nice: Everyone gets it. FL, MA, and RI get 20Mbps up and downstream like NY, NJ and CT, while the rest get 15Mbps both ways. They've also got an option for 30 down and 15 up, but the trailblazing tri-state area picks up a new 50 down/20 up package. No word on that 400Mbps Gozilla bandwidth, unfortunately. [Verizon]

Here's what bugs me - I need to move house to a new location. I have several general areas that would meet my needs, i.e. put me closer to an office of my employer. There are few factors I need to consider. (I have no kids, so I don't need good schools or even a stereotypical "good" neighborhood.) One of those factors is internet access. So you'd think I could go to the Verizon web site, look at a map, and see where I can get FIOS. Right?

Nope. You input a zip and get told that it's not available but that you can sign up to be notified. Screw that; I just want to move somewhere that it's available.

I have to believe that someone somewhere has scraped this info from the site, inputting all U.S. zip codes and finding out if FIOS is available, then putting that info on a map. Anyone know where to find such a thing?
