Can you get HiDef TV, internet access (at cable speeds) & telephone through FIOS?
They have a lot of different rates for their Internet http://www22.verizon.com/content/consum ... prices.htm
, which I hear is good for gaming but have no experience with them. They start at $43 if you have their phone service. Has far has their channel's go their base package seems to start at $48 a month http://www22.verizon.com/content/fiostv ... prices.htm
, which is steep. Their site says they have over 20 HD channels, which news reports say they will be increasing over the next two years in two step increments. A package price for the first year will be your best bet, but watch out after that. I guy had comcast and was doing their $99 a month for the first year and it just ran out on him and he got a bill for $180 for just one month and he didn't even have all the extra channels.
We have direct tv with all the bells and whistles, over 95 HD channels for $109 a month. Comcast Internet second tier with basic channels for like $59 a month and use Vonage basic 500 minute service for $19 a month with tax's. For $187 a month we have every thing under the sun.
Comparing Fios to Direct TV it seems like you could get all the premiums channels with dvr for $89 a month plus tax's what ever other fees they might include. Their Internet is about the same if you don't use their phone service and go with Vonage. The only real difference is that come September Direct TV should have close to 120 HD channels if they are available from the tv stations.
I know Comcast's phone service is about $45 a month so I would think Verizon is a little under that for unlimited calling?
