Yeah, that's not a very accurate rumor. I live in Rockland, and we're 
one of the first communities on the south shore that had FIOS. Rockland 
is by no means an affluent community, compared to towns like Cohasset, 
Hingham, Scituate, Duxbury, and others. There are also very large 
communities like Plymouth, which I am sure would kill to have it, but 
it's still not there yet either. I suspect that this is more a 
growing-pains thing than anything else - from what I've heard there is a 
fairly decent demand for it in the communities that it's in, and they 
are still running into issues that need to be addressed, so they are 
focusing their efforts on stabilizing the existing base before moving on.
