Residents in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., can begin to subscribe to Verizon Communications' FiOS video service, Verizon said, under a contract that gives the telecom five years to complete its build in the city of about 30,000 people about 75 miles north of New York City. A Verizon official estimated that about three-quarters of the city's residents should be within FiOS' service area by mid-2009.
