YAY! My neighborhood is getting Verizon FiOS!

21 replies 4 views Edited Mar 28, 2007
My neighborhood just got a bunch of warnings saying that they are going to be digging up everyones front yards to put in FiOS wires! If you don't know, FiOS is supplied by Verizon and is supposed to be faster than Comcast High Speed internet (cable) but cheaper!
Now we just have to wait on the construction workers to install them! Awesome...who here has FiOS? Give me your opinions!

Good, do you have it? What is your opinions on it? I kinda want to know how much of a speed increase and how much of a price decrease is expected. Also, if a lot of people use FiOS in my neighborhood, will the speed decrease due to the amount of FiOS users?

No, my neighborhood is getting it! Which means we will most likely get it as well as some of my neighbors.

No problem!


I just checked on Verizon's FiOS page and it says they offer TV as well. We have Comcast HD TV currently and there is NO WAY we are going to switch unless FiOS offers HD as well. Does anyone know for sure? Can we have Verizon FiOS Internet but still have Comcast HDTV is FiOS does not offer HD channels?
