Which way do we go
My brother lives in Delmar which is one of the few areas of upstate NY where FIOS is run. As I was visiting one day I looked at the lines running along the poles between his and his neighbors house and asked why he didn't subscribe to Verizons fiber solution (being that he was complaining about his cable modem woes with Road Runner). He told me that he never even heard of it and so I told him all about it. He called up but they told him it wasn't available to him. I told him that is that were true, why does your neighbor have it? After he explained that to them, they sent someone out to set him up and he hasn't been happier with his internet connection. I only wish they offered it in the Clifton Park / Halfmoon region. My internet connection is fine with Road Runner (albeit slow at times), but the HD channels almost always seem to get pixilated. Of course they don't offer tv in upstate NY yet either so I guess it is a wash for now. A number of the people I talked to that could get FIOS said they weren't going to consider it until they could get TV service as well.
