FiOS installed today replacing dual ISP ADSL. Although a time consuming process, everything worked well out of the box, bandwidth is good, POTS noise is gone, my router works fine with the FiOS. Tech was a paragon of cooperation. Time will tell if there are any hiccups.
Update 25 Feb 08: FiOS has continued to run flawlessly, although rarely very late at night I have observed it to be down for a bit, perhaps for maintenance. Recently converted one of my two 5/2 FiOS to 15/15 and tested, 15/15 bandwidth was obtained. Operating both connections with a Xincom DPG-502 dual WAN router.
Anticipated transfer to Fairpoint Communications may only be days away; we'll see what Verizon, Fairpoint, and the NH PUC hath wrought.
Update 16Feb10: We all know now what Verizon, Fairpoint, and the NH PUC hath wrought. However, there has been no negative effect so far on FiOS performance. I expect there to be a very long time before Fairpoint is able to offer TV service.
Update 22Mar2011: Still no Fairpoint TV service in sight. Otherwise, FiOS/FAST keeps chugging along doing what it has been doing. APC Back UPS on each ONT is good for about 6 hours, but after power failures of up to a week have added a generator to pick up the load. Not holding my breath waiting to see what impact IPv6 induces.
