I currently am a Comcast broadband subscriber. This past month Verizon wired my neighborhood with fiber optic cable. Shortly, they will be introducing their new Fios service which is supposed to outpace cable company offerings with blazingly faster broadband speed. I am quite excited by this news -- especially for the fact that the faster Fios is supposed to be at least $10 cheaper a month. Was hoping someone here is actually using Fios and can tell me how much faster it is over cable. I remember reading an article in USA TODAY or THE WALL STREET JOURNAL less than 2 weeks ago from a columnist who was touting the speed difference. The only thing that worries me about Fios is cable competition. I understand that once Fios goes widespread, the cable companies are going to increase their broadband speed to match or exceed what the Verizon service is offering. In other words, it may or may not be worth switching providers if there is a cloud of competition on the horizon.
