Am impressed that FIOS is up and running since we have 5 poles down 100 yards from my home.
My Neighbors tree took down all the lines and the utility poll in front of my house and atm I am still able to use the phone, watch some FIOS channels (most have degraded signal but around 30 still come in) and use the internet. Pretty amazing considering the fiber line was stretched at least 25 feet. Too bad the electrical line couldn't do the same..
