Re: Fios ?
said by patcat88:UUNet was the first commercial backbone provider. BBN was the first provider, in the sense of ARPA-IP entity. Both started by using telco lines. I believe Verizon bought BBN, too, though, so your statement is roughly right enough.
Verizon has free bandwidth for FIOS. They do own the first Internet backbone provider (UUNet)
