Verizon FIOS FTW?

Postposted on Wed Nov 16, 2011 5:14 pm

20Mbps Down/ 5Mbps up :D , installed an hour ago with TV and phone.
Way better than that piece of sh** Clear 4G internet I had, which was constantly throttled whether I downloaded too much or didn't download much at all.

Note: Easynet is actually BSkyB Broadband now, and it's bundled with my TV for £5 a month extra. Can't fault the price or service IMO, but we are way behind other country's here in the UK when it comes to actual speed. :(

Not bad 8). Sometimes my download speed would drop below 1Mbps when I had Clear4g internet, which was quite often. Worst thing is that it costed more than the fios I have now :o .

lol, thats pretty epic. The technician was telling me I could install 100mpbs down service but I'm sure it would cost an arm and a leg...

Ahhh - it kills me that Verizon stopped expanding FIOS for the time being - they deployed in north Orange County, but not south. Oh well ....

Nope, and neither does any device I can picture using that kind of connection!

I do a lot of streaming and downloads on my phone, so the connection is nearly always being used.
