The wife finally insisted we switch to FIOS to get the multi-room DVR. Cablevision has always been good to us and their service has been fine so I was reluctant. But after having FIOS for a few weeks I wish we would have made the switch years ago. I consistently get 84Mbps/33Mbps on speed tests (75/35 service). So far the service has been rock solid and speeds consistent.
The install took the better part of a day; installer arrived at 9 am and didn't finish up until 4 pm. He did a very nice and neat install though and I have no complaints.
The DVR has significantly more space that the Cablevision DVR (500GB compared to 160GB) and also supports an external eSATA drive if the 500GB isn't enough. We also received an Actiontec wireless N router which is nice as my previous router wasn't up to the task of handling FIOS speeds.
EDIT: I only gave tech support 50% because we haven't had a reason to deal with Verizon tech support yet, so giving either a 0% or 100% didn't seem right. I will update the review when we do.
