I placed my order yesterday for the FIOS
service from Verizon (and for their phone service). For those of you not familiar with this service, it is fiber to the premises -- that means the connection from my house to the outside world is fiber. That's right, fiber all the way to my house. My internet connection will be over the fiber, as will my phone service. Sometime by mid-next year, I should be able to cancel my cable service, as Verizon will be offering TV over the fiber.
Needless to say, I am very excited about this! Once the install happens, I'll post again about the overall experience.
By the way, I ordered 15 MB down/2 MB up.
