FiOS was installed into my home today.
This augments my T-1 line, which is where a lot of my other servers not handled by outside hosting goes. When you go to cow.net, or this weblog, you’re yanking from the T-1. FiOS will up my current download speed from 1.5Mbps to 20Mbps, and upload speed from 1.5Mbps to 5Mps.
I am not 100% fantastically happy to be utilizing Verizon’s service, but they’re the dominant monopoly and I went for the one year signup. If they blow, they go. And believe me I’ll know.
I see gabillions of “I got FiOS Installed” weblog postings out there, including this excellent one from Dan Bricklin, so I won’t fill your screen or time with yet another one, even if I thought I could make it “funny”. My installer is on the ball, friendly, young and knows his crap. Hooray for that; it harkens me back to the early days of my phone life and meeting the Bell engineers who were on top of stuff.
So, if you find anything slow this evening, blame me as I begin downloading the Internet.
