Prior to moving I had Aracnet for my ISP providing me with DSL service, and
Verizon simply provided the line. When we bought a house one of the
previous sets of owners had suckered for FIOS, as a result the only option
was FIOS. To get the level of service I was paying about $40 for now costs
me more like $120. While the insane jump in speed is nice at times, I don't
see that much benefit from it, since most websites I visit can't provide the
data anywhere near fast enough.
Basically I have a business FIOS line now with Verizon, and still use
Aracnet for everything.
