Our family has been using Verizon FIOS for over ten years and they have provided us with better Internet connection and service than all other Internet providers.

Time warner sucks and all the internet providers in my zipcode have super high prices to go along with not the greatest service. I need to get rid of time warner by next week, I hate them. I think I'm going to put rabbit ears on my house and get Karma for my internet. I don't know whst else to do. I hope Google internet shows up so I can get that.

I signed up for the most basic service and so far I am happy with if. When I went to their location to sign up they tried to tell me that it would not work with wifi because they wanted me to upgrade to the next level which I think is a little bit more per month but I opted not to and the wifi works just fine. So for the (current) price and for the quality I am satisfied for now. The only thing I don't like is that after a year the price keeps going up and up so it would make more sense to go with another provider like Verizon because for the money verizon is better.
