I haven't had DirecTV for 5 years. I moved, now in an apartment where I can't use Direct. When I first moved,
I had Time-Warner now have had FiOS for 18 months.
I've worked in television production for many years, use a 4k Samsung UHDTV and know a good television picture.
I couldn't wait for FiOS to be installed in my apartment house and was one of the first to have it installed.
I'm thoroughly underwhelmed!!!!
The picture is no better than TWC's.
Their most advanced STB does not allow "Native" video output.
Their most advanced router is inept. I had to move in within 2 feet of the main area where I use my laptop and
it still doesn't do the job TWC's router did.
I have had nothing but trouble with the billing department because I was lied to by rep who set up my account.
I specifically discussed the billing cycle and when payment was due. Far from what I wanted, and was told I
Verizon plans to drop FiOS in favor of an OTT system which is currently in test - not much future for FiOS!!!!!
And, I too plan to drop FiOS - once my 2 year contract is up.
I will probably end up with Spectrum and continue to bemoan the fact that DirecTV (which also may be disappearing)
isn't available to me!
