FIOS denied

Verizon called today and canceled my FIOS install. Their reason? They can't locate the water and sewer pipes between the street and my house (or apparently any of the other houses on the street). This is the sort of thing you would think they'd check on before spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to lay the fiber down the street and install splitters everywhere. What's the point if they can't actually get from the street to the houses?

I guess all that lovely new fiber will just stay dark and I'll keep giving my money to Comcast. Thanks, Verizon.
