Verizon FiOS

The bonus of this whole Internet thing is knowledgeable users can sometimes peep things that we don't have access to—like the very lucky and privileged few who already have Verizon FiOS fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) that we've been hearing (and hoping, wishing, dreaming) about for way too long now. One of the first cities with an active rollout is Keller, Texas, and resident Craig J.'s got a sweet first-look user review of the IPTV service, which has 20 HD channels and apparently the best picture quality dude's ever seen, including non-HD channels (to paraphrase). Just to tempt you a little more to move to an area with service, you can also pick up 30/5MBps fiber Internet access, if you recall. Oh, cruel metropolis with constantly-going-out 5/0.3MBps Internet, we curse thee!
