No Savings For Me

I had not priced FiOS out and I am surprised to see it is $70 (non-promo price as I do not care about temporary promotions) for 15mbps service. Cablevision is serving me with 18/5 service for $54.95 plus I get access to their WiFi network. I am not sure how FiOS is competitive in my area with those kinds of prices.

I have Sprint for my cellular service so I am used slowdowns (all the time).

In NY, the promo price is in effect a perpetual price. Once your promo price runs out, it is trivial to renew it by switching to a slightly different plan, which will cause a slightly different promo rate to kick in. I've done this twice now.

In addition, with FiOS you get access to the Boingo Wi-Fi network, which gets you in at hotels and airports all over the world, as well as several spots in NY Metro.
