I wish Verizon would hurry the hell up and bring it to South Florida... They need to break the death-grip Comcast has over everyone.

With fios do you do the hole 20,000/8 you get 2.3mbps so with fios you do 35,000/8 you get around 4.3mb sec a download?

This.

I am upgrading from AT&T POS, I only get 3/.2 on my street offered by them. For Comcast I am getting 16/10 then they will up grade it to 25/10.

I have the 25/25 plan with FiOS currently, the speeds that I get are closer to 30/20. I used to be on comcast, with comcast I would get ping spikes to a server in new york that I should get 20ms ping to, the spikes would take me all the way up to 1s ping. On FiOS I get like 15ms ping to said server. While I download games off of steam, I get an average ~3MB/s.

I'm on FIOS in Brooklyn, NY. Had it for ~2 years. In that time, my internet connection went down once for ~6 hours, which they said was for some kind of backbone upgrade. No complaints; this is how internet access should be.

What kind of speed package do you have now?

35 megabit equates to around ~4.35 MB/sec maximum transfer speed (downloads, etc).
