in fact i never brought up internet in here i dont think, others did to defend verizon fios services.
its as ift hey dotn care about the tv service much and have therefore fallen to the 3rd best choice in my area of 3 main choices.
So you had a "rare fast" (ie: NOT THE NORM) connection so that justifies you being a foot up comcast's a$$? lol. The NORM is that comcast sucks (sorry to break it to you), you just had ONE good experience (or who knows maybe you work for them). You never brought up internet but what's this?
to prove i can say something positive about fios, i will say the internet sevice is half decent. i have 15/2 and its pretty good with stable speeds.
See, when you go running your mouth like a little fanboy you deserve what's coming. You say it's "half decent." That's a load of bs. I would say comcast is borderline "half decent" to not good. Fios internet is very good. Like I said, you can't take your one data point and extrapolate that across their whole service. Ever taken statistics?
Again, comcast doesn't even offer 2Mb upload as the norm, so again, no comparison. You're right you don't have to explain to me what you're doing with the bandwidth, I don't want to know. Point is, if you need the bandwidth, you pay for it. Just because you were getting a higher bandwidth (in exchange for some favors for the cable guy) doesn't make the service better.
If you had good service, great, but don't go running your mouth that comcast is better than fios.. Just looking at the speed tests on dslreports will clearly tell you otherwise.
Regarding verizon's channel lineup, I bet 99% of their customers could give 2 s**ts whether or not they receive HD channels immediately. Like others have said, verizon's SD channel quality is leaps and bounds better than directv when I switched years ago. They also rolled out local HD and other HD channels long before a friend with directv got them (did I mention he also pays alot more for the same stuff and has had to change boxes/dishes and other nonsense)? Directv is good, I have no problems with their service, I just prefer fios. But, just because verizon doesn't get HD channels immediately is no reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Not having the latest HD channels come out immediately is a-ok.
