Both Verizon FIOS users were reportedly very happy (other than their experience using Netflix).
Really? I live outside the city (as in no water or gas infrastructure) and I still have FiOS, here in Northern Virginia.
Yeah, they apparently weren't able to roll out FIOS to anything other than outlying suburbs across most of the U.S. Not very many people are able to get FIOS, and they stopped expanding their service area a few years ago, and even sold off parts of their fiber network to other companies in certain markets. If you aren't in a FIOS service area now, you probably never will be.
