We've been customers of Verizon for 18+years. Our internet has continually cut out with is having to reboot our modem daily. They have been here numerous times telling us story after story. The latest was that they were sending us too much and it was dropping off before reaching us because of the distance it has to travel. We live 14 blocks from where the signal comes from. They lowered our Gb that we were receiving, so we could t download On Demand. Then they raised it so it takes 1.5 hours to download an hour long show. Now their new thing is FiOS. Good luck with that because it isn't available in this area. We have had enough! Now looking for new internet. If I could give Verizon zero stars, I would!!
