We do have a triple deal but its phone, internet, and Direct TV, cause we signed up for it when they had the Direct Tv deal and we signed a 2 year contract. So they still give us the deal (our contract with Direct TV will be done in a couple of months), then we can switch to fios TV. They still worked with us though or else I wouldn't have agreed to it. Our DSL was like one of the 1st modems that ever came out, it was so old. My concern was that they install everything for free and my monthly phone bill wouldn't go up and they did it. So I am paying exactly the same. So far I do see improvement and no more little things hanging off the phone plugs or modem connected to the computer. Everything is wireless!
We have FIOS here in NY. It definitely rocks. FIOS offers non-compressed feeds, so the picture quality is among the best (if not the best) out there. DirecTV has a better selection of HD, plus unbeatable sports. However, I did experience some audio drop outs and picture issues. Nothing major, but it never happens with FIOS. They do charge a lot for their boxes. Last I checked, their HD-DVR is about $16 or so. I have TiVoHD, so the damage is $6 per month for (2) cable cards. This eliminates the need for the FIOS DVR/Box. Add TiVo fees and it breaks out the same. TiVo trumps any of the DVRs on the market, so I'll gladly pay for it --- because it simply works!
thanks for the input chris.. i myself have not tried either FIOS or U-Vers, they seem interesting to me but from reading it, it just seems like a scam to me... [maybe not maybe it is good, just ahead of its time] who knows.. my dad has HD and that is ok..
