Ive notice some people stating they didn't see a good enough reason to go with a two year agreement. I live in RI. I also live in the town (warwick) to be the first to recieve fios. If I had to estimate or guess I'd say I've had fios for around 10 years now. In my experience they have never held me to the two year commitment. I've always been able to cancell service or downgrade with no reprocessings. I've cancelled a couple of times over the years. Now if this still worries you, all you have to say is your moving. Give them an address that fios is unavailable. They DO NOT hold you to anything when this is the case! Somthing people may want to consider before not agreeing to a contract. $100 savings on an install is still $100 in your pocket. If you are afraid my info is incorrect just ask a rep before ordering. Ask them that if you agree to two years and you move to a location that doesn't have fios what then? They will explain it to you. This is how I first found out. Hope this is helpful!

If you read the terms of the ETF, moving to a non-Fios address does not exempt you anymore...it used to, but no more.

Earliest you could have gotten FiOS was May '05. See »FIOS In Rhode Island.. East Greenwich CO was wired in April '06, and available for order in July or August.

Besides the old rule of "No ETF if Moving", downgrading from triple to double play did not invoke the ETF either. But, as kes601 said, cancelling for any reason now will likely trigger the ETF.

The double play has a different ETF than the triple play, but to my knowledge, downgrading from triple has not triggered an ETF.

Well I'm sorry you guys feel that way. As I just moved in January this year and was able to cancel my service. Also I was estimating when I got fios for the first time. 05 is still 7 years ago. If I remember correctly the first month Internet was free. So I went with there highest package. I believe it was 35/5 or something. And as far as 05 being when fios rolled out in my neighborhood , I believe that was when the tv services became available. Internet was available a lot earlier than the tv. I'd just like to add that I don't BS people! This is just my experiences.
