I've had Verizon Fios for several years and have never had an issue with the internet. I stream movies on several devices (sometimes simultaneously) and never notice a slow down. The price could always be better. But if you don't mind calling and haggling when your contract is up, you can usually prevent the price from going up....as long as you get to a good customer service rep.

It's definitely fast! The bundle pricing stuff drives me a little nuts. We tried to save some money by cancelling the bundle and just keeping internet but the difference in price was minimal so we just kept it all. Customer service is always hit or miss, although my last couple of calls have been really good.
