Verizon's new FIOS?

14 replies 3 views Edited Mar 27, 2007
so, just today i have heard one ad on the radio, and one ad on tv for verizons new fios internect connection. What the hell is this? is it better than cable? faster? all i got out of the commericals was fiber-optic something or other. I'm just wondering if anyone has read into this and if maybe anyone already has it.

It's better then cable? Well depends what price and speed you are getting it. Its something thats been out for a while but they are having hard time rolling it out for everyone. I'm still unable to get it since I don't like comcast anymore.

I wasn't asking you by the way. Here is the speed and pricing. I think once they reach into my area, i'm switching for sure.

It's a way of trasmitting data. It's supposely very fast and alot better then cable and DSL but its hard to get out to general consumer since it's expensive to set the Fiber Optic cable all around the nation for customers. Many people who have it already are very happy.

I heard that in a power outage FiOs users get 8 more hours of energy or something.

Never heard of that but maybe it's possible? Don't think so but hey it's 2007.
