I'm asking here because it had been talked about in the past in the BBV thread.
I have the option between Verizon FiOS and Comcast.
I'm leaning towards FiOS just because it's not Comcast. I only need tv and internet and I'm looking at the package that will give me internet of 15/5. Will that be good enough for playing games and watching tv online -- netflix and other online sites? Or should I go with the 50/25 for +$10?
Also, is the $100 prepaid visa worth it for a 2yr agreement?
dunno about the visa, but i had fios for one year of my life and i would love to get it back. unfortunately many of the areas around here are controlled by comcast. it's like a gang war.
What about DVR? Right now I have 1 tv, but some time in the future I plan on getting a new one, bigger with HD. If I get DVR hooked up to 1 tv does that mean I can have 2 tvs on the same DVR, but I'll only be able to use one at a time?
For example, if I have a tv in the living room and a tv in another room, if I record on the tv in the living room it'll also be using the tv in the other room?
Avoid cable like the plague. Never give $ to TW or Comcast unless you can get some kind of a discount.
If you are the only person using the internet and you don't need the extra upload bandwidth, 15/5 is fine.
You might also consider U-Verse. 2 year contract really sucks and I know U-Verse offers 6 and 12 mo deals.
50/25 might be overkill, but I use the internet quite a bit so it'll be nice to have something considerably faster than what I have now.
I'll be living in somewhat of a development so my only options were Comcast and Verizon. I went with the 2yr contract for now because the price went up another $10/month after the first year. There is also an option to remove the 2yr contract within the first 30 days, but I think I'll be alright.
