I dont understand whtere there is so much fios advertising in an area that doesn't even have it... right now we have Thai menus with FiOS ad's on them... pizza boxes... and Verizon Wireless stores with FIOS banners on them... yet its not here
Re: Verizon is awesome
said by kilometers3:I currently have 6/1mb with Comcast.
Verizon is such an awesome company. 65 bucks a month for unlimited usage with that much bandwidth is like a dream come true. Surewest out here gives 20/20 but it costs around 80-90 dollars a month and has monthly caps on it.
Meanwhile AT&T FTTH users still enjoy their super fast next generation 6/1 speeds. xD

Is that the same 6/1 service I used to have that tested at 2.5/500k peak and 128/56k between the hours of 9 and 11pm when I wanted to game? Offered by the same Comcast that made me drive 25 miles six times in less than a year to replace defective modems?
Oh come here Fios and hug daddy, I love you so much! *kiss* *kiss* *kiss*
Die Comcast, die!

Re: No luck for business folks
said by DHRacer:Yep, seems that way. Like I said, it makes perfect sense. I'm just damned happy with $100/mo for 15/2. Nothing wrong with wishing I could get 15/15 for $15/mo more (which is the increase for residential hehe).
So it's the same price as the T1/T3 lines they are trying to protect their resume stream on?
Hello...is there anybody in there?

Re: 3 years ago people asked for did cable notice ?
said by DaveDude:By "listening" I guess you mean "rip out the HFC network and start over".
Over and over , article after article. People have asked, and asked cable for symmetric packages. Even businesses served by cable cant get it. Well maybe the cablecos will listen this time.
Both FiOS and cable are by nature asymmetric (the outside plant has more downstream than upstream available). However FiOS has more overall bandwidth available. Even with a ton of node splitting, cable is at a disadvantage as the system was not designed to offer anywhere near the amount of upstream to support something like 15/15 or 20/20 service.
Not to mention that 90-some percent of interweb users don't give a rat's ass about upstream...
Kudos! I have to hand it to them, they've really raised the bar with this. I can only hope more ISP's follow suit and the "age of asymmetric speeds" finally dies a long overdue and much deserved death.
FiOS is truly an impressive product... too bad its cousin, Verizon Wireless, is such overpriced crap!
Hahaha... AT&T U-verse... what a joke!
