Yes, i would. fucking qwest sucks did a search on there site to see if they were even planning it and couldn't find at the front of the 10000 entry list. there search engines sucks ass for one and they will probably be the last company to install it. in fact they probably wont even think about putting it in untill everyone else already has it installed. The bitches.

They're actually doing a LOT of places out here. I've seen reports of Rowlette, about 10-15 minutes east, and Lewisville, which is nearly an hour west of here (closer to Keller). And I'm a bit sad... I was hoping that since it was a small price increase from their low to middle package that it would be a similarly low price increase to their top end package...

$200/month for the 30mb line! I'll stick with 15mb for $45.

and if i'm reading this right, the packedge even comes with a 4 port broadband router.

all this is just another reason why i'm thinking about moving to the DFW area :-D

That router goes on ebay, to be honest. I'll just have the install tech terminate the ethernet (the NID outside is replaced by the ONT, which inputs fiber and outputs ethernet and has an APC UPS to keep it up during power outages) in the 24 port patch panel that resides in the rack I have here in my home office. The from there it's a quick patch cable into my linux router/firewall which feeds my lan. I have no need, nor a desire, to use that router/switch they include. I have a 24 port managed 3com superstack switch mounted in my rack that handles my switching needs.

Don't hate me cause my neighborhood is early on the list for FIOS. Hate me cause my neighborhood's almost complete and rumor has it we'll be online with the fiber by year's end!

Quick update -

The Verizon trucks have returned... and in force! They're everywhere! They've got makeshift tables setup at various points where they dug the pits, I assume they're splicing the fiber.

bottom of the page, Verizon officials (the lady referenced on the notices we received) stating the entire city should be done and have fios within 6 months!
