FIOS

I was pretty psyched when the Verizon people let me know I could upgrade to FIOS (which is a 15MB internet connection for my home/office). It went about as badly as I’d expect it to… but in reverse order. I assumed they’d install it and it wouldn’t work for a week. Instead, they shut off my DSL week before they install FIOS, which had me working out of the Kirkland Library which, while nice (free, very fast, wifi), is only open 10-6 and has some ass destroying wooden chairs.

Anyway – FIOS is installed and it kicks ass. Joost is now totally usable (internet TV, let me know if you want an invite – it’s really nice). Just for the hell of it I did a DVD rental from Amazon’s Unbox (LAME! – PC only… but I have parallels on the Mac so I could still use it). Rented a 2GB movie and downloaded it in 20 minutes. Sweet.

If FIOS is an option where you live, upgrade, it’s worth it.

Congrats on the FIOS, but man, you could have come hung out in my office for a week. :)
