FiOS Fascination.October 1, 2007
I have been fascinated with the speed offered with Fiber Optic Internet connection, the upstream and downstream are ridiculously in speed. The only thing that I don’t like about it is the upload speed, there are plans that offer 5mbps upstream but you can only buy that plan with 30mpbs downstream. 30mbps is waaaayy to fast for me. I actually think that my hard drive would not be able to write data that fast. I have been asking the people on “live chat” (which I think are either A: bots; or B: Indian people hired to talk to me via Internet from their home office in Delhi) So after trying to sift through that mess, I decided to go play Counter-Strike:Source, gotta love the Zombie Mod.
Tomorrow afternoonish I plan on calling Verizon to get the connection installed. After reading more about the installation process, I found out that it will be free the first month and the installation fee will be waived, sweet! I will be keeping this up to date with more info as it comes.
Here is my ‘speakeasy‘ speed test results for my current connection:
Download Speed: 6880 kbps (860KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 491 kbps (61.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
