No FiOS at home Yet? No Problem!
For those in areas without Fios, don’t despair. You can get in on the fun too. You can get VoiceWing which is Verizon’s Broadband Phone service. VoiceWing is a Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) service that offers phone service over a broadband Internet connection like DSL, cable, or Verizon FiOS Internet service connection. You don’t have to have Fios to use Voicewing.
You can also get in on Verizon DSL. The speeds are slower than Fios but beats Dial-Up any day! How much do you pay for your DSL or Internet Cable? Check out the DSL package below. Chances are if you have Verizon DSL, you will be the First to know when Fios gets in your Area! At least that was my experience but could have simply been because Fios was new to everyone since I was in one of the first Fios markets
FiOS & Fiber Optics
Most major ISP central offices are already connected Via Fiber (this is not a fact) you will have to check with your Local office to verify this. They only need to run Fiber from the central office to your house to complete the Fiber loop! Fios is way ahead of the game compared to other ISP’s. Typically you get Fios Internet first and as soon as they get a Video Franchise in your community, Fios TV Baby! Caution, Depending on your community, Video Franchises can take a long time finalize. It all depends on the politicians in your town and how hard your Local cable company fights to keep competition out. Read about it in the Is Fios in My town Article
100% Digital TV will be streaming down that new FIBER Optics Cable to your door step. Using the new MOCA Technology, it is possible to distribute TV, Internet and Phone through out your House. You can really take advantage of this if you use Media Manager-Read Verizon Unveils Home Media Digital Video Recorder for more info. You think you have seen Digital TV?? Wait till you get a hold of this baby. Even on my Non HD TV the picture is Mucho Clear!
From most reviews people say they see a significant improvement in picture quality when switching to Fios. Now that may or may not be because of the technology used to compress your Video. Jury still out on that Important Note, to experience full HDTV, you will need an HDTV Television and an HD Set Top Box. Fios TV uses the Motorola QIP6200 HD FiOS TV Box as their basic HD Set Top Box. They also offer other STB’s. You can read all about Fios Equipment in FiOS Routers & TV Boxes
Did you know that by the time Fios started rolling out the US was placed 13th in the world when it comes to FTTP/FTTH (Fiber to the Premises) Technology?!!!!!
Do you know what company in the US has a plan and a little bit of money to change all that is?? You guessed it; just happens to be the only company in the US providing Fiber to the Home en Mass. ….Verizon. Key Word en Mass…. They have set aside $18 Billion to get you into the 21st century and catch up with the rest of the world. Put you back in the group of Developing Countries!
