My brother has FIOS setup in his home in Dallas and it is amazing. Can't wait until I get FIOS especially now that I have the "Elite" sitting around.
Unless Verizon provides that landline phone service in your area, don't hold your breath for FiOS. Those are the places they are focusing on for the time being. (With exceptions here and there...) In many urban areas, somebody else (Qwest, etc) owns all the landlines in the city and then Verizon covers the suburbs. So that's where you see FiOS availability.
It's pretty frustrating- I live in Seattle, for example, and most of the suburbs around us are gradually getting FiOS. But within the city limits, where Qwest owns the landlines, Verizon told me they have "no plans" to offer the service.
It's Comcast or satellite for us.
