Does anyone use Verizon's home Internet (DSL) service?  If so I would like to know what kind of service you have and how you like it.  Any feed back would be appreciated.  Thanks

I got Verizon Fios about a week ago, is that the same thing? As of right now, the only complaint I have is that the WiFi speed is terrible.

I'm not sure if it is the same thing or not.  Apparently Fios is a bundle thing with TV, Internet, and phone.  We have the home phone from Verizon and are quite happy with it.  The wife is going to Verizon tomorrow to get some more info so this is another question for her to ask. 

 

Do you have a router and if so can you plug an Ethernet cable in the back of it?

It does have a router, and I am 99% sure you can plug a cable in the back, I will check to make sure.

I have Verizon DSL and have had very few times were the internet was out.My average download speed is 2.8 Mbps where fios is advertising 15 -75 Mbps,significantly faster but more money.I believe there were several different speed plans that could be had and I think I got the next one up from the slowest.
