    I just place an order for the package today. I got a lot of channels and a good deal total came out to around 160. I would like to know the Pros and Cons ofhaving this. I've been using Direct Tv for about 4 years now and my new bill quote its $114 cheaper so, i think im good.

    lol ive been have the same package since summer, its supposed to be 99, but trust me it wont be close. verizon bops you with extra charges. Also if you got thefree amount of HBO, cancel that *$!# as soon as it runs out, cuse they bill the *$!# out of you for that too. my first 4 bills were 300-650 bucks, but i usedinternational calling at $6 a #*#$##* minute which is why it ended up costing that much, expect your bills to be closer to 200 though [​IMG]

    i use to work for them never had it though. So from what i know its supposed to be the fastest domestic connection out because they have fiber optic lines andnot copper. everything runs of power including your house phone so if you go through a few blackouts you may want to get the battery on that checked. yes theymay have to dig in your yard. they offer the most HD channels i believe and have on demand. if your a big fan of football and want the league pass or whateverthe nfl channels are that the dish gives out they can add that to your plan with fios. try to get something free, before i left we were giving out HD boxes fora year and hbo channels. make sure you get rid of that stuff before the free trial because they will tax you. i think that's pretty much everything iremember any more questions let me know.

    Fios Remote FTL.

    Mine keeps spazzing out. It won't work (batteries are new and everything). My dad had to call Verizon yesterday only to have them say how they'll senda new box on Monday (because it's not connecting correctly with the remote).

    I just got Fios like 2 1/2 weeks ago.
