  3. Wow that is one of the greatest things I have ever seen!!! I actually just got ANOTHER credit card application in the mail today, so guess who's getting a 70 pound box of junk! HAHAHA Thanks for the info, I'm going to pass it along to all my friends Now if there was just a way to make e-mail spammers pay shipping for 72 pound boxes.......
  4. I'd say about a month or two from my experience. I saw the signs about the "Fiber to the Premise" a couple of weeks before they actually started working on my street, then a couple of weeks after they were gone I was finally able to get my piece of internet heaven Welcome to the forums Pegster, I know the wait must be absolutely KILLING you muwahahaha..... Don't worry, it is DEFINETLY DEFINETLY DEFINETLY worth it
  5. Ok so I'm slightly lost here First, glad to hear your phones are back to normal, even if it isn't the best/most elegant solution. Here's what I'm a little confused on: Verizon hung a new copper drop to your house for your phone to solve the echo and intermittent dial tone that was happening while the phone was running through your ONT. Got it, makes sense. Your computer is still running through FIOS, does it still lose connection or has taking the phone out of the equation fixed that? I wish your FIOS experience had been better, I want to make up shirts that say "I <hear

  7. Welcome to the wonderful world of FIOS! Pretty sweet isn't it edit for minor spelling error
  8. Actually SOAHF I didn't forget I just forgot to mention it in the post. I asked about that and he said yes they are going to offer it soon, and it will be like comcast on demand. How freakin sweet is that going to be!!!
  9. My install went great. The guys showed up right on time and got right to work. I told them I had some cat6 cable I wanted them to run since cat5e (what they use) doesn't use all of the wire pairs and cat6 does, not to mention cat6 is twice as fast as cat5e and makes my setup future-proof. But I digress... I helped one tech out (Mike) in my attic showing him where the computer room approximately was, so he crouch-crawled over to the area and told me to go knock on the wall near an electrical outlet. I did as I was told, and shortly thereafter I heard a drill going through the header in the
  10. I would have continued to use my SMC Barricade except I had 4 connections I needed to make and only 3 ports on it were good, one of them had gone out a while ago. Sooo, I'll just have to settle for the D-Link

  12. Well I'll just have to ask them when they come because on the 28th I'm getting FIOS!!!!! As Monty Burns would say, "Eeeexcellent"
  13. 2 months sounds about right, I just wish they hadn't left that nice huge hanger on my door to tease me when I couldn't get it yet. Hopefully they use the box close to my house because it's in my backyard! LOL. So is Verizon offering TV service too? That would be nice to get my phone, internet, and TV from one company. I am going to call to order later on tonight, so we'll see what happens!
  14. SOAHF: I live over by GHS and just got another teaser in the mail about FIOS. Checked my phone number against their database and it seems that I might finally be able to get it. Fingers crossed!
  15. Hey all, just recently found this site and gotta say the forums seem like a great place to get some help and everyone is very supportive. Anyway, on to the topic: Has anyone had a notice about FIOS being available but come to find it really isn't? I live in Grapevine, Texas and not too long ago Verizon came through and dug up my lawn and flower bed to lay down the fiber optic line (and hit both my sewer and water lines in the process, causing debris to come clog up my washing machine among other things). A couple days ago I got a very large hanger on my door stating that FIOS was here, th
