Verizon FiOS - is BGP an option?

In defense of the tier 1's it's not as easy as it looks to run BGP with the
lower end business customers.  On the technical side the edge boxes and
links to them would be as overloaded with routes and peers and all of the
other PE boxes in an ISP network.  Not to mention the changes in routing
policies and addressing schemes and the general operation of the service.
This obviously isn't the case for every ISP, but I can understand why it's
not popular.
