Verizon FioS is so fast!!!!! - Page 6

post #51 of 86
I have a local ISP called BELD (Braintree Electric Light Department).



We're paying for 15/5. BELD sucks. I guess their nodes are overloaded and they having been fixing the issue since the beginning of this year, but if anything I've only noticed a decrease in speed.

FIOS is an option. My neighbors have it. My friends have it. Anyone who does have it loves it, but "BELD is a local company so we should support it."

(200th post by the way)

My current ISP. Their speed is decent but they're not very reliable. Cuts out almost every week.

She talked to verizon and according to them, she will have to have a connection for each computer !!!! That is the biggest bull I ever heard ! So wondering if you guys know of anything like that or someone from Verizon is feeding her horse crap.
One another note, I got CRAPPY mediacom. I am soooo frustrated with mediacom, if this was the medieval age, I would make an army, get some nice nailed clubs, and go clobber all the mediacom worthless managers and supervisors that are worth crap. I do not blame the regular working guy. They got no choice. But mediacom is selling 10 down and 1 up for $60 ! And to top it all, they are over utilized. So at around 7 - 9pm when everyone gets home and get on the computer, it is slower than DSL - think like 2 down and 1 up.
That sounds a lot like Dial-up. Remember those days?
