    I wish I was part of that most part. Oh well.

    I am sure it will not come West of LaPlata, probably to Port Tobacco, but that is it. there isn't even DSL past that point.

    I'm two houses before Cookseys (heck I can't remember how to spell it lol) if you're driving away from LaPlata proper. So we're probably off the same feed.

    I'm about 4 miles from where Comcast stops (Bel Alton Newton road)

    how would we get DSL? we're not close enough to the wire center (next to Ledo's Pizza).

    where are you getting this info?

    If your info is correct I will cry from joy. 28.8 kills me a little more inside every time I try and mod part of my forums.

    I'm a manager with Verizon

    We use existing RT's and add what is called a adtran to the remote terminals. This is how we reach more remote areas or areas that have a large population but aren't close to a central office.

    Let me clarify on the FiOS offering. When I say La Plata I mean La Plata. Other towns and cities such as Nanjemoy, Port Tobacco, Welcome are not targeted for FiOS.....Only La Plata sorry

    Back to your feed ....You are more then likely fed from Penns Hill Rd which would pretty much be a no go for DSL. Have you looked into EVDO? I have that now and it's great. The price is high but I would have to say quality of the service in wonderful. I average about 1.5m down and about 500K up which is better then the lowest DSL tier. DSl isgood obviously because o the price.

    ahh EVDO is useless for gaming because of the cap =/

    my mother was a manager for verizon too hehe she used to work out of the LaPlata branch a long time ago

    about FIOS .... I'm in dentsville, but I have a LaPlata address .... any idea how far up Rt 6 FIOS will be going?

    So what is Verizon's strategy for deploying FIOS? Is it the low hanging fruit first (condos, townhouses, densly populated areas), and the rest later? I tell you, I'm eager to drop Comcast for access to full digital television, not the pseudo-digital package that Comcast tries to portray as being 100% digital. Most of the channels still get to my residence in their analog format. bleh!
