Well, it finally happened! My area was recently added to the list of FiOS ready neighborhoods and I could not be more excited. I am currently paying $29.99 a month for DSL. It's decent but I want better connection speeds. I'm willing to pay the $49.99/month for the middle FiOs package if someone just tells me that it's deifnitely worth it..Thanks!

I have the high end FiOS package, I don't know what the middle one is like, but by the way this one is destroying my previous dsl, I am sure even the low end FiOS package would be worth it. Go for it, you'll be absolutely amazed at the speed.

I switched to FiOS today

Last Result:
Download Speed: 20589 kbps (2573.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 4298 kbps (537.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Absolutely incredible, and I was on a pretty good connection with Optimum Online already. Only $25/month added onto our Verizon Landline for 20/5 connection. Dropped the $50/month Optimum Online 10/2 for it
