  • Location: undisclosed location
  • Cost: $99 per month
  • Install: about 1 days
Good "When it works(rarely more recently), it works great"
Bad "Premium price, data caps exist, routing is unfinished"
Overall "incompetent peering practices, VPN use necessary to avoid sh*t tier routing, gaming impossible"
Pre Sales Information:

Value for money:
(ratings below consensus)

Update 8/13: Bandwidth caps have been confirmed to be between 2-10TB/month, even for Business customers(that part seems odd, but it's just an extra f.u. to the customer).

11/26/14 - Still crap Internet routing, Verizon not going to do anything about it(as parroted often by VZ fant@rds)...if you're reading this and contemplating switching to Verizon from CableVision, Optimum or TimeWarner, you have been warned.

Repair call won't do anything, I have full speed but latency is crap and I get massive timeouts. Verizon refuses to acknowledge the problem. They insist it's everything except their network(my router, pc, website visited, etc). I have hard evidence via trace routes and pingplots but the tier 1 support doesn't even know what a trace route is. I am not the only one - see the forum especially the thread titled " High pings / bad routing..."

Just insist to talk to their manager, eventually you'll get someone who knows their stuff. Verizon FiOS has the lowest pings I've ever had something is definitely wrong
