    I think the "MBC" is a joke. leastways they haven't updated their site with anything (much less progress) in almost a year.

    FIOS is almost too fast.... well ok, not too fast, but its almost like being on a network at the office.

    the HD tv from FIOS is much cleaner than the HD from Comcast.

    Ive had FIOS for about 7 months now, and so far the only time it went out was when a tree fell across my lines in the ice storm and brought everything down. other than that? not so much as a flicker of static on the TV during electrical storms.

    MY house phone is also now run through the FIOS and it has never been a cleaner connection.

    Price is comparable to the Comcrap price but the service is ten times that of comcrap.

    I think the better service has to do with Verizon being considered a public utility, and comcrap being a private owned business. The rules for service are a little strickter on Verizon.

    They also send only one bill per month that includes the internet, the tv, the house phone and my cell phones. Big bill, but better than all being separate.

    I highly recommend the Verizon service over the other choices as soon as it gets to you.

    I am in the 20646 zip code, but at the far end of it...
    Starting in the immediate "town" from Crain Highway, Radio Station rd, Washington Ave, etc. Beyond that I'm still waiting to hear.

    I have my assumptions as to where it will go but that would just be a assumption. I don't want to give false hope.

    I have Comcast and most of the feeds are digital. The only analog feeds are those of the networks that choose to broadcast in analog.

    Well, poop. Comcast is finally trenching down my street now.
    I don't have a cool signature. Thanks for reading this though.

    huh

    I thought they already had cable on 488

    are you on Hawkins Gate or something?

    at any rate put a sign up in front of them that says "please run cable to Cookseys Store so Xaquin44 can finally check his e-mail from home"
