FiOS Install Complete; Expect Posts to be 8x Faster Now


Posting has been scarce this morning, as I watched Terry, my Verizon FiOS (s VZ) installer, make the magic happen. He just completed the install — and did a bang-up job, as you can tell by the results of a quick speedtest: low latency and solid speeds both up and down! For $65 a month, I’m a happy camper.

I’ll have to get my wireless home network properly set up, but I can do that in the off-hours. For now, it’s time for lunch and then back to work. I actually can’t wait to use this nice, fat pipe to upload some high-def video from the new Canon T1i DSLR. I used it for yesterday’s review of the Plantronics Voyager PRO Bluetooth headset, and I think the output looks great, even at full screen. The upload over DSL was a killer, though. Not anymore!
