I will tell you about when I got Verizon Fios. Many years ago, pre-fios, I used an ancient technology called DSL (two tin cans and a string) to access the internet at a whopping 6 Mbps. Verizon and my county signed a franchise agreement and Verizon began to install fiber. I would call verizon and search online to see if I was eligible and the answer was always not yet. I, too, lived at the end of the line, lost in the woods. One day, I had a problem for which a tech visit was necessary. The tech asked me why I had DSL when fios was available. I said that I thought that it was not available but he said yes, probably just that my address had not been entered into the appropriate database. He said he would fix it. A week or so later, I had fios.

So, in summary, I would say try to get help from the local construction crew or a Verizon tech if you see one in the neighborhood. They can check stuff that the 800 number people can't see.
