How many of you have ever heard of Verizon FIOS? I had heard it mentioned, but was not sure exactly what it was. So, I took some time to check it out when I was offered this opportunity.
Verizon FIOS is Americas top rated high speed internet service. It also allows fast upload speeds and has amazingly clear streaming video. FIOS internet is 100% fiber optic. Now I don't know about you, but I get frustrated when I am uploading or trying to stream video and it takes forever, or stops and glitches. This would be a great benefit to me. FIOS can upload a 50 MB photo album in 20 seconds and can download 10 songs in 8 seconds. To me that is amazing! Ten 1 MB attachments in 4 seconds. I don't know how many times I have had to sit waiting for attachments. FIOS comes with Verizon email, WiFi access, and it includes a personal web space to build your own blog or website. You can backup your pictures, records, videos, etc, from accidental damage, power surges, hackers, etc. What a comfort that is. I lost everything on one computer because I did not backup my files, and this sounds like an even better option.
The next feature I like best is the FIOS Digital Voice feature. You can have an individual ring tone for different family members. You can set the phone up to block callers who block their caller id information. You know, like telemarketers. You can give 3 numbers to forward your calls to so you won't miss any important calls. Now, that is a nice feature. You can actually send all callers immediately to voice mail or you can choose a list of callers you want to be allowed through at all times. I think I am beginning to wish we had Verizon FIOS. For an additional charge you can receive 3 other numbers that will ring through your phone, each with a distinctive ring so you know who or why they are calling.
FIOS also includes TV, which we personally would not use, but I will include the information for you. The fiber optic technology allows you to watch HDTV with less interruptions and pixelation or weather interference. Flex View allows you to watch what you want when you want where you want.
To be quite honest I would probably really enjoy the phone and internet options available through FIOS.
