Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
Verizon FIOS Triple Play: $139.99 for 24/mo
Ultimate HD + HBO/Cin Combo + Movie Completer
150/35 (provisioned as 150/65)
1/13/2012 - The upgrade to 150/65 was rather painless. I had some issues with my own internal wiring creating some crosstalk. Took all of 15m to provision, 30m to find and fix the cable problem, now working great!
12/10/2011 - I moved and brought my FIOS with me. New "inside" Motorola GPON installed in attic instead of outside box. Got "new customer" deal with the move - NYDMA priced package $114.99 for UltiHD+HBO+Cin+Completer, Digital Voice, 35/35. Took about 3 hours all told. Was even able to keep my number in a different area code for an additional $5.00. Got the new 7232 DVR too, spiffy, love the full HD menus.
I've had FIOS since sometime in 2006 and have never wanted anything else since. I originally started home service on Verizon DSL, then switched to Optimum iO broadband. As soon as FIOS became available, I switched back to Verizon and have never regret my decision. I originally only had a double-play (phone/internet) with the 50/50 service for $200/mo, one of the few residences to have it (they marked my account some weird hybrid commercial). I then moved to a triple play at 25/25 for $140, then upgraded at some point to 35/35 at the space price. For the most recent see above.
First BBS - 1986, 300baud modem.
First UNIX box on Internet - 1993 with a full time dial-up SLIP from UUNet for $350/mo.
