Verizon FiOS

My parents are considering this, and I'm doing some research on it, but I thought I'd ask you fine folks, because we've got a pretty fair pool of knowledge; what do you think about this service? On paper it obviously looks good: cheaper than my cable internet and certainly better than their DSL, but I'm always leery of new technology; it generally needs to be shaken out for a while first. Any comments are appreciated.

Damn I am drooling over FIOS. I live in a rural area and get the pleasure of having dial-up that connects at a whopping 26K.

I wouldn't really consider this new technology. All it does is extend fiber "the last mile" to your home. Everything's already going for the long haul on fiber anyway; FIOS just gets it to your home without copper slowing everything down.

FiOS is going to be amazing. I cannot wait until it is widespread!! It is the wave of the future.

If it allows me to dump my dependence on the Comcast monopoly (cable TV and Internet) I'm all for it. Consumers need the competition.

I checked to see if it was available at my house and it isn't yet. Once they have it available for my area and if static addresses are included I will move in a heartbeat. I pay way too much for 1.5/768 DSL right now through Speakeasy.net.
