FiOs in GR? Not Likely
Even if Verizon starts expanding FiOs installs again, you will never see it in Grand Rapids, or for that matter anywhere in Michigan. Why? Because Verizon only does FiOs installs in areas where they are the local telephone carrier. Verizon has absolutely no presence in Michigan. The few areas they did have they pawned off to that poor miserable excuse of a company called Frontier. So you are stuck with Comcast (which incidentally I have here in Hazel Park and am very satisfied) or the deathstar (AT&Shit). I think you made the right choice.
@MIHotBear: Good point I didn't think of that (no VZ presence). It will be interesting to see what happens with Google Fiber. I know GR made a really big splash in trying to get it here. Hopefully since they are going to pick other cities in '12 or '13 maybe they may make the cut. In the meantime I wouldn't mind seeing speed increases (even if it means more $) now that GR is completely upgraded to Docsis 3.0 (from what I have heard).
