    Sort of off-topic:

    Have any of you VZW subscribers signed up for the home service bundles they satrted offering? You can check it out from the My Account page at the VZW website.

    I currently have Comcast internet, but I hate it and am considering signing up for verizon. If anyone has tried it please let me know what you think of it!

    makes 2 of us........I live in L.A where they don't have service for fios/internet/home phone and am moving 2 miles away and STILL NO SERVICE. I was like "Where the **** do you guys have service? This is L.A for christsake." Would love to get Fios/internet/ etc bundle but no such luck...gotta stick it out with crappy AT&T and Dish Network..

    Yeah I'm pretty bummed cuz fios looks pretty damn cool and the price is also better. Gas going up food going up can't save a little money no way no how. Maybe I'll start selling my body on Santa Monica Blvd.............

    You coulda had an easy sale Rich.....I mean fios that is.

    LOL Troy.

    Honestly, They are making progress and im sure it will be availiable in MOST metro areas within the near future. Its a lot of manual labor. They've got crews of guys literally stringing fiber across the country. Im in Jersey and the goal is to have all of Jersey lit up by 2013.

    I'm going to call customer service and say Rich Eller said you would install fios especially for me...see what they say. If you got a lot of pull over there I'll see some dudes stringing up that fiber in a couple days

    Its coming....eventually. It's going to take a lot of time, especially in rural areas. Im in the New York metro area and we're getting lit up like crazy. But like i said, they're projecting that the entire state of Jersey wont even be lit up until 2013.

    I just switched from Comcast to Fios and the services as well as the customer service is times better then Comcast. The tech who came to install my TV and Internet actually knew what he was doing unlike the contracted techs for Comcast. He even made sure my PS3 could connect to the interenet and gave me a HDMI cable for it as well. It might cost a little more, but if you can afford to upgrade you should and with One Bill you save money on your home service.

    I HATE Comcast!!! As soon as I found out the Verizon FIOS was offing the local Comacast Sports channel. I switched. I have to have my Phillies & Flyers games. That was the only reason I didn't get satellite, because Comcast would let them broadcast the channel. I got the package with internet & never looked back......

    If they can't or don't offer it in major metro area's like LA and others then to me they don't have it down pat yet.

    do you have above of below ground utilities in LA?

    above ground is going in a lot faster and it also depends on the townships and the contracts they have with verizon and other utility companies.

    We switched from Comcast (cable and internet) to Verizon FiOS (phone, tv and internet) in December and have never been happier.

    I currently live in Beverly Hills and am moving to the MidCity area (not even 2 miles away but whole new zipcode) and STILL no Verizon (home service) I WANT FIOS NOW!!

    I lived near UCLA at one point (which is about 3 miles away) and had their home service there (FiOs was not out yet) but since I moved no such luck.

    Amy you just had to throw that in there didn't ya? Rich do something will you? I'm tired of reading all these other peeps enjoying something I should as well damn it. I'm begging you...........please.

    I'll pull the plug on this News3Online is your breaking news center and expose you Rich if you don't do something quickly

    VZW is currently ripping up our streets to install FIos as we speak. Once it's complete and we have FIos, I'll be signing up for a bundle for sure!
