Re: Splitting the FiOS signal - Need help?
So, did the wife complain because her internet service was degraded? Did your internet use affect her internet use?
Do you know what service level do they subscribe to? 15/5, 25/25 or 50/25, or 35/35 or 75/35?
What were you using the internet for before she complained? Strictly web browsing and email?
While I won't completely dismiss your "hormones" excuse, there's usually something behind a complaint. Maybe it's your barking dog or loud TV that keeps her awake at night. Or maybe it's just rude insensitive comments that she has to put up with all the time. Whatever, she's decided she doesn't want you to get anything easy.
Who cares about VZ TOS on sharing internet. Not me, I share mine. But if you set up a shared connection unbeknownst to her, and she finds out later, both you and your tenant will have more problems than a mere TOS violation which VZ doesn't much care about either. Especially after she said no already.
Whatever you do, do it with her knowledge, perhaps with her approval. The fix isn't technical. Try a negotiated resolution.
First of all, its his TENANT living on a completely different floor. Id bet anything he has two electric meters in that house, you want to cut one out, and feed off of his electric as well? He can receive rent, but have one set of utilities?, shall we look up landlord laws in NY?
OBVIOUSLY..... the house is wired for 2 different accounts. The next step is for the immoral to start adding STB's from his neighbors account. Nah, Verizon doesnt care about this, its JUST in the TOS.
This type of behavior results in price increases for the people unlucky enough to have a sharing situation. Sharing, its stealing. Kudo's to the wife. And by the way, I work for them, thats my wages and benefits youre siphoning.
