Verizon: Please ignore our FiOS ads

Verizon has officially announced that it won't be installing its high-speed fiber-optic cable network in most of upstate New York, or anywhere else it already isn't available. But that won't stop the company from advertising the service in areas where it can't be had, Verizon spokesman John Bonomo tells the Daily Freeman:

Bonomo said residents in areas where FiOS is not available should equate seeing Verizon advertisements to those for auto dealerships.
“We run those commercials in those areas or on those mediums that hit the most people,” he said. “Now granted, you are going to hit people who don’t have availability for it. It’s the same thing with a car commercial. ... They can say buy a Chevy, but I don’t have a Chevy dealership within 50 miles of me.”
