I've only ever had comcast, but the place I'm moving to next week doesn't get comcast. So, anybody here have any insight/opinions on either of these providers? TIA
i have friends and family who have Fios - they all love it. Wish I could get it.
I went from Comcast to FiOS and have been pretty happy with it. You can find some pretty good deals for it sometimes on the Slickdeals.net forums.
Verizon FIOS Triple Play for $64.99 - No contract - HD TV, 15/5 FIOS Internet, Unlimited National Calling Hot Deals
FiOS is nice. I never had Cox, but I switched from Brighthouse. FiOS is a little cheaper and they also have the multi-room DVR option. I have the "extreme" HD package that came in a bundle package with 25 Mbps internet. I have bout 80-90 HD channels.
Overall I really like it.
That triple play deal is pretty cheap. I have no use for a home phone, but it seems like it might be cheaper with the phone than without it.
Thanks for the info, everybody.
Oh - how is fios w/ on-demand stuff? Do they have very much of it, or not really?
Fios has btn, cox doesn't.
Fort Wayne was one of the first techno test markets for Fios. Used to be a dish or comcast cable town but Verizon sunk millions and a couple years into laying Fios all over the community. I know the other posters have talked more about this package vs that package etc., but let me just say, respectfully, that is not the point. The bottom line is physics, electrons in a copper wire can never compete with light in a glass fiber: not for speed, not for bandwidth, not for signal degradation. We went from Comcast (electricity through copper cable) to Verizon Fios here (light through glass fiber) and I was amazed at the difference just the switch made...and we have a crappy old tube television. The picture quality went up several notches and the PC speed went up a little too. The tech for Fior explained that TV and internet signals degrade over distance in copper wire, and worse yet, they degrade more, in that the main signal feed goes into a neighborhood routing box where it connects with other cables that go to individual resisdences. By the time the signal gets into your tv its lost a ton in quality. Not so with fiber optic: not only is the signal preserved better but there is no routing connections.. the signal goes directly into your home set. Get the Fios!
I have Cox and I think their pricing and customer service is better than Comcast, but not as good as DirecTV. Those are the only other providers I have used to compare to. I also think the Cox DVR is more user friendly than Comcast.
They do in AZ, I would be suprised if they didn't have it other places as well. Channel 1177.

is FIOS available in EL? Every single time I have tried to check on their website, it says they cannot find the address I entered. Doesn't matter what address I use, they can't find shit.
Behold the walls of Sparta: 10000 men and every one a brick.
If Fios is available in your area go with them, the service is awesome. We have had it for almost 2 years and have yet to have an outage or service issue. No problems with customer service and the internet speed we get is always fast and even faster than what we are supposed to be paying for in our package. As soon as Fios was available we switched and were the first in our neighborhood to do so, since then almost everyone has switched(easy to notice as there is a distinctive box/drop they install on your house).
