FIOS Hell YEAH!!!!!!
Dumped AT&T DSL yesterday.

FIOS REVIEW FROM ME:

It is a verifiable 3x faster than DSL. (speedtest.net)
The FIOS HD TV SIGNAL is MUCH clearer than Dish Network.

Oh and I am saving $40 a month with a $100 rebate! And no install fees.

If you have the option to get fiber optic services, do it yesterday.

Re: FIOS Hell YEAH!!!!!!
I got the HIGH SPEED Fios, not the SLOW Fios.

I can download entire webcast college courses from iTunes, hundreds at a time and run music, etc.

I didn't know there was a slow vs fast FIOS. I can't imagine my pc being able to handle much more speed. LOL

Yeah it would probably be the same issue at my house. 5 year old desktop would putt along slowly. New laptop that is less than 1 year old would probably be slowed by the wireless speed barrier.

Re: FIOS Hell YEAH!!!!!!
It's $90/month, and that includes digital TV (not HDTV) with a sports channel package so my husband can watch his football & fishing shows.

I use the computer for hours, every day.

--Google scholar (scholar.google.com) for scientific journal articles, etc.

--Google books (books.google.com) for online book reading. If you like the book save it to your "library" list in your google account.

--iTunes for free webcast college courses from everything ranging from medical to graduate engineering classes.

--podcasts for everything from how to make souffles (Cook's Illustrated is the best for cooking) to how to dance for your husband (LOL).

--News reading and writing... if I want to run an electrical wire up through a floor joist, there are videos on YouTube!

The FIOS is more than paying for itself in the money it has saved us.

I'm learning much more stuff, now with a high-speed connection, than I learned when I was in college full time, for the cost of the Internet connection. If TSHTF, I have thousands of hours of college courses and webcasts on portable hard drives that I can watch, 'cause I don't have time to watch it all right now.

I could do all that with a SLOW Fios, too. But the FAST Fios, which has a next-step up in bandwidth, came with the package.

High bandwidth versus lower bandwidth FIOS seems to make a difference when I'm downloading several video streams at once, which I hardly ever do. Sometimes I do set up to download a few hundred videos from iTunes (each college course can have like 25-50 hour long videos), and then start it to download overnight while I'm asleep.

The podcast is called "Stripper Method", and the iTunes URL is

[link to itunes.apple.com]

I took some classes here locally, which my husband gladly paid for, but this podcast subscription has lots of little with moves suggestions.

Yes, kinda cool huh?

AT&T was $170 A MONTH for tv, data, and phone....

TV was through Dish Network and it was Sketchy at best.
Data was AT&T DSL
Phone was AT&T

My new bill is locked in at $110, but I kept basic AT&T phone service for now.. Hence I'm only saving $40.

Re: FIOS Hell YEAH!!!!!!
I have charter cable internet $30 a month for 30mb down. Switched to outside antenna for TV w the very hi rated antenna I ordered off the net and pull in 33 channels pointed north and 28 pointed south and one of my favorite channels is m.e TV which has all the classic TV sitcoms like tvland USE to have years ago and that station is 135 miles away from me and I keep a 78 on signal strength w this antenna. Best of all its all free
