FiOS is moving in

November 30th, 2008 at 1:38 am

Looks like my neighborhood back home is getting Verizon's FiOS service.  FiOS is Verizon's new fiber-optic, high-speed network that they are rolling out nationwide.  It is their way of seriously competing with the cable companies that offer bundle services.  Verizon will be able to pump tons of data through this system, and fortunately the cables they are installing will be able to support even more data in the future.  This is a good thing seeing as how the install process has damaged our yard.  Take a look at the picture of a worker digging in our yard for an example.  Even though we may be eligible to sign up for FiOS soon, I think my family will stick with Cox's services for the forseeable future.  We are somewhat wedded to their cable offerings as well as their business class internet (which hosts my website).
