Update: Put back the Verizon router rev G. So far so good.

Update: Upgraded to the triple play package with 150/35 (provision at 150/65, get 153/58), verizon ultimate with all movie channels and a home phone. Received 7232 DVR and a standard box for free as long as i maintain a triple play package. DVR works perfectly. Paying 139.99 (without tax) didn't receive the bill yet. So far so good.

Ordered FIOS double play (35/35) with home phone on 10/2/2011 and installed on 10/22/2011. The tech was very helpful and knowledgeable. He put in the ONT into my garage and hook it up thru the ethernet port into my network. The tech said i was the first installation in my 5-6 block and was the first connection to the hub. The tech had to get another tech to come over and wire the pole to install a new mini box. I removed the verizon actiontech router and hook it up into my Asus RT-16 router with tomato firmware. This works perfectly. I receive my full 35 download speed however my upload is around 31-32. Also if i use up all the bandwidth the other PC starts to crawl when going on the internet, with Road Runner they might have some QOS setup on their connections since i am still able to access the internet when the bandwidth is all pulled up. I love the online tool management for the digital phone, can get voicemail and handle the administration of the digital phone. Fios is a little expensive 79.99 for first year, 89.99 for second year and 3+ is 99.99. Haven't got the bill yet, so don't know if there is any additional taxes and fees add up. Previously have Road Runner Cable Turbo for 29.99 for a year for 9+ year.
