With the Superbowl just a short time away, people all across the country are looking at their television, internet and telephone providers in a whole new light. The television has to be vibrant, clear and reliable so that no one misses a play. The internet service provider has to be as fast as light so that disputes over play stats can be settled quickly. The telephone service has to be clear and reliable for the trash talking with people who aren’t at the house talking trash with us. In other words, it really is time to get Verion FiOS.
Verizon FIOS claims they can help you live better. In fact, in all their advertising materials there are photos of smiling faces using technology, having fun and getting things done. If you are like me, you wonder if all those smiling faces are smiling because they believe what they are saying or if they are smiling because they like the paychecks they are receiving. I have been using Verizon FiOS now for more than six months now and I feel I can give it an honest review. I think they are smiling because the service is really amazing.
Whenever someone asks me about FiOS, I tell them how much I really like it. My friends online an in the real world laugh at my stories about my kids using FiOS in all kinds of crazy ways. If I have said it once, I have said it one hundred times – I never though you could play Marco Polo with a landline phone until I saw my twins do it! Before installing FiOS we had not used a home phone, a landline for years. It has been a lot of fun showing my children how they work and how they are different from the cell phones they were used to. My daughter who is away at college likes the FiOS app because it lets her watch whatever she wants even when she is out of her dorm and away from her television.
First I have to tell you what FiOS is fiber optics. FiOS uses light to transfer video and data signals to your house. Because the signal is brought directly to your house, which leads to fast internet , a sharper television signal and a home phone that sounds better. Now, in the spirit of full disclosure, I have not had a lot of experience with the television. My children have taken over the television and are enjoying the many channels, sharp picture and reliable signal. Now that school is starting and I will be sending the children to school they will be hitting their beds earlier. This means I will be able to enjoy all the channels and the sharp picture just in time for the new fall series and all the season openers. Since the children have commandeered the television, I watch most shows via the mobile app on my phone or tablet.
