I’ve had Verizon FiOS service for about a week now and I immediately started sharing my experience in a blog series called, the FiOS Chronicles which you can find at shellypalmer.com. I live in midtown Manhattan and I waited over 18 months for FiOS to wire my apartment building. It was worth the wait. After a relatively painless 7-hour conversion process I was able to say goodbye Time Warner Cable, so long old-fashioned Verizon landlines, adiós cable modem, hasta la vista backup DSL modem – hello 150 Mbps down, 62 Mbps up – awesome! The first thing I noticed was that nothing, and I do mean nothing, prepares you for browsing the web at 152/62 (Verizon’s published specification is 150 Mpbs down and 35 Mbps up). You may wonder if you need that much speed. Time is money – you do! The next thing I noticed was the FiOS user interface, it’s feature-laden and completely intuitive.
