So here's something interesting. If you have Verizon FiOS you can get two different phone services.
There's regular FiOS voice, which lets you plug your analog phones into the ONT.
Then there's FiOS Digial Voice, which lets you plug your analog phones into the ONT.
The "digital voice" product is cheaper, and I finally figured out why. It's incredible that they get away with this. The "regular" voice service runs over ATM to the ONT, and is tariffed like a regular phone line. The "digital voice" service runs ove IP to the ONT, and even though it doesn't use your Internet connection, it's tariffed like other VoIP services, about $7/month cheaper.
Fine with me ... less of my money going to the governmonsters.
I respectfully told him that we are a very satisfied Verizon customer and he would be wasting his time talking to us.
He left quickly ... but that might have been because I was holding a chainsaw in my hand at the time. He was visibly nervous.
That and you were naked except for wearing a Trump hat, but that is how you usually do yard work.
You covered the logo with duct tape, wrote "Trump" on it with a Sharpie®, and you do the yard work naked.
Nah, that is stupid, nobody gives himself a haircut while wearing a hat.
OTOH, you didn't say which hair... a proper mankini zone trimming with a chainsaw is the thing I could imagine IG doing.
Unless he comes out flaming!
"Want cable? I'm on FIRE!"
There really is no comparison. I'm an IT professional working from home and my Internet has to be 100% solid all the time. FiOS offers that; teh cable company doesn't.
I do not care for my cable internet, but it's all I have. I can't get FiOS to the condominium, because... associations suck.
Altice, the ranine cable company that operates Optimum/Cablevision and Suddenlink, is supposedly going to migrate its entire service footprint to fiber-to-the-home, at a 10 Gbps speed [ https://goo.gl/qaGAhc ] over the next five years. It is not clear whether they are going to deliver the video portion of the service using RFoG or IPTV. I'm not a fan of RfOG to the subscriber premise; obviously they have to be able to retrofit existing homes that are only wired with coaxial cable but that could be done with MoCA (indeed, even Verizon could switch, with nothing but a software upgrade on the existing receivers). And for those of us who are infrastructure nerds ... I'd love to have a single all-Ethernet wiring plan in the house for data, voice, and video.
Things are going to get interesting. But for now, cable still sucks. And for those of you with Comcast it will always suck. :)
I have Comcast.
What you need to do is work for Comcast. Comcast gives their employees free cable TV, VOIP, and Internet service for free and/or greatly reduced rates. After that the service is still horrible but you don't mind as much.
Hrm... no, don't think it's worth it.
