You won't be disappointed, trust me. We've had FIOS TV for a month and Phone/Internet for seven. It's fantastic! VZ's HD is phenomenal plus there's much more HD content than Comcast's.
I called up and ordered HBO today(Sopranos and Entourage are coming back this weekend). Granted, it's probably a couple bucks more($15.99) than Comcast is charging but then again you get HBO West channels so there's something like 14 HBO channels while Comcast has 6 or 7.
Some people in this forum were thinking of switching back to Comcast because VZ was slow in adding NESN HD. Give me a break, people! You were actually going to go back to the cable monopoly and pay more money for crappy service?! Please. I'd rather watch NESN in SD(which is a 100 times better than Comcast's) and stay with VZ than become Comcast slave again.
VZ is also introducing Freedom bundling(Double, Triple and Ultimate depending on how many services from VZ you get) with April's billing cycle which will break Comcast's kneecaps even more.
