Verizon FIOS is wonderful for people like me who really like technology! I mean I really like technology. It is not uncommon for me to be watching a movie on my tablet, writing a book on my laptop, using social media on my smart phone and doing research on my e-reader. I really like my gadgets. When you like technology and gadgets the way I do, a good internet connection is a must. If you are sometimes forced to work while your children are home and need to be entertained, it is important to have a good selection of television networks suitable for children with the ability to block things young eyes should not see. that is where FIOS by Verizon comes in.
Just a few weeks ago, I received notice that my current internet service provider is going out of business effective November 2015. Of course, that prompted me to start looking for a new provider. Naturally during my research period, FIOS from Verizon came to my attention. Verizon FIOS is different from other ways of transferring information. Verizon FiOS uses lasers to send information through optical fibers directly to your home. Fiber literally travels at the speed of light. It’s a national fiber infrastructure that feeds directly into customers’ homes. Fiber optics aren’t influenced by weather conditions. Fiber optical cables carry light instead of electricity, they are not disturbed by changes in the temperature, rain, cold, or virtually any other environmental condition. If you have ever lost the signal to your satellite dish during a storm, you know how frustrating this can be.
Verizon FIOS is particularly good for busy homes like mine because it does not subject users to the “internet rush hour.” At many homes, traffic jams start around 7:00 pm when kids are doing homework, and parents are connecting through social media and streaming movies. You get more rush out of ‘rush hour’ because of a FiOS dedicated connection, no sharing bandwidth with your neighbors. No more buffering or error messages waiting for On Demand programming. It’s also future-proof. FIOS can keep up with ever-changing TV/HD and Internet technology. You won’t have to switch again.It is built to allow you to have the same internet speed for both uploading and downloading – something we need more and more off these days as we share videos and photos, store in the cloud. It’s also something cable cannot provide.
