Well, it looks like your upload speed is actually faster than your download speed...very unusual.

She's at a University which probably has a circuit with the same speeds up and down, and the kiddies are using the download side for their movies and music and pr0n.

I do have the FIOS TV. Signal quality is excellent in both standard and HD. It required that they give me a free wireless router. Installation was a bitch though, and showed that they don't completely have their act together.

The set-top box is meh OK. Their onscreen program guides are excellent. The remote is pretty good. The DVR in it is just OK, clearly not a Tivo. On Demand is broken and I haven't called them to fix it yet, partly because the teenager living here part-time will cause me to go broke once it's live.

haha... they don't have a spending limit you can set?

They are supposed to have Fios here within the year. The Internet is a no-brainer. We'll have to see about the TV. We've been very happy with DirecTV, but I'm willing to consider the Fios. On the other hand, we'd have to give up our Tivo. And the purchase of an HS set is not in the cards for the near future, so it's hard to imagine any possible Fios advantage other than price.
