I love FIOS, 15mbps down and 2mbps up always for $40 a month. :)

I have absolutely no fluctuations and no slowdowns at 7-9pm like you get with cable since there is an optical cable going right to the Verizon station from my house.

If possible, you should always get a Fiber Optic connection over cable just because it is so much more reliable.
Wait there is slowdowns atr 7-9pm for cable? Mine just jumps not slows down. Also they don't Server FiOS in my Area lol I checked...also trying to get my parents to switch would be a bitch..also Cox is the Best and more Reliable in our Area
They have RoadRunner, AT&T, Comcast(I think), and Cox. I heard bad, experienced bad reviews from AT&T, Roadrunner. my school and a couple of my friends use it...
