I just love my FIOS !!!!!
We were just outside the range of traditional DSL from the hub so I had to endure dialup here for many years....that and rotary phones. I was too cheap to pay an additional $ 1.00 per month for touch tone. We had to get DIRECTV as cable company (Comcast) wanted $ 800.00 just to run the cable back our long driveway to the farm houses.
I first got FIOS internet and phone when it was available. Several months later they offered the video. When I found out that they carried the Flyers games on the TV portion, it was a no brainer for us. It seems like the owner of Comcast also has the lock on Phila sports teams.
Had 2 occasions to get repairs. First time a branch ripped the line from the side of the house. They were here in 1 1/2 days. Second time, they were here next day. When I originally got the FIOS, they offered a $ 100.00 gift card for signing up. Then because they had to delay the install 1 day they offered another $ 100.00 for the inconvenience. Hell, I took that too.
I ran all new wires in the house to a distribution block. The connector box and UPS are attached to back side of the coal bin. From there 1 cable to the distribution block and another to the wireless router. As the tech was wiring the router, he agreed to run a second ethernet outlet into the kitchen where I'm sitting right now. I ran the wire as he was connecting everything.
The only issue we have is that there are 2 houses sharing the same address. I finally got them to give me the circuit number for our line so we can keep the 2 houses seperate. Makes it easier to talk to tech support.
