For phone, internet and cable TV.

I think I'm in love. :inlove:

Phone works, internet is fast as hell, and 100's of TV channels I will probably never watch. :lol:

I can download shit so fast now, it's crazy. :bolt:

I'm so happy, I just thought I'd share. :D

let me guess, Fibre Optic Service? what's the speed on that thing, I bet you could download the whole internet in 5 minutes, no?

Advertised as up to 30 Mbps downloads. The reality is much slower of course. But still, it is way faster than the cable internet access I had through Comcast.

I hate Verizon and their lobbying asses. Glad you're happy though.

well for $179/month it better be 30Mbps. :lol: :lol: but at the lower end it says $34/month for 5-10mbps which is twice as fast as lower end dsl. not bad. particularly for that price. but i never was a fan of having the fastest connection because if the site is running slow it makes no dif. and most sites that i am on, www.cuteoverload.com and so on dont even take advantage of the connection i have. so for me its not so good.
