Many carriers have a end of year freeze on network changes. Although the freeze has been planned for a long time, I notice it didn't stop sales people from promising due dates during the freeze period. If you are expecting to see new service turned up on Dec 31, I don't think your odds are very good. Some of my friends at other carriers told me they had a big push to get a lot of changes into their networks before December 23 to beat the freeze.
