The politicians will now have to demand higher bribes from other business interests.

I wonder if Verizon will be as completely incompetent at providing cable television as they are at providing phone and DSL services.

Verizon offers FIOS which gives you high speed IP via Fiber Optics. You cant get any better than Fiber optics. Light speed TV, IP and Telco. Wow....ZooooooMMMM! Shazzamm!

I too have FIOS. It was installed about 2 weeks ago. Have to be honest, it's not really any better than the DSL I had. Phone sounds the same and the internet is barely any faster. Sometimes it seems to actually be slower.

Thanks god it only cost me a dollar or two more than my previous package.
What package

I think depending on the package..the less you pay, your FIOS speed won't be as good..but still better then DSL - no doubt. You won't notice the difference in your phone service I hear, unless the power goes out. If you have cable..I think your phone goes out with the electricity but will still work with FIOS. And FIOS TV is the best! So many options and like you said only a couple of $$ more.
