What appeals most to your Family about Verizon Fios

     Do you remember when you watched TV you had to get up and turn the channel or even adjust the volume?   I am just 35 years old and I remember, you also only had about 3 channels to watch and you had adjust the screen.  We thought we were something then and really had NO idea what that little technology would bring us to 30 years later!  Now the technology allows us to watch TV in our favorite chair and never get up to turn it, we have DVD's and CD's.  We even have remote controls and TV's for our cars now.  But the questions come up now about home security.  I remember growing up or security system was our big dog that we had a my dad kept his shotgun handy!  But have you heard of the Verizon Fios?  Allow me to tell you a few things I have learned about this system and the new technology it uses and tell me what you think!

     Verizon Fios is a fiber optic service.  They offer several different packages depending on your family interests and needs.  If you have satellite TV you know when the storm comes or a really cloudy day, you may not be able to watch TV because you can't receive any signal.  With Verizon Fios this is not a problem, You have Digital TV that is always available. J. D. Power and Associates ranked FiOS "Highest in Residential Television Service Satisfaction in the East Region," three years in a row. This programming also offers the ability to streamline your TV so that if you missed a show last night or this morning and you are stuck in traffic or find yourself with a little extra time, but not at home you can streamline that program and watch it on your phone.

     Verizon Fios also offers the fastest Internet service available.  They have a bundle package called the Triple Play which includes High speed Internet, Direct TV, and home phone service.  Unfortunately it is not available in North Carolina yet but they are working diligently to all 5o states involved and major cities.  I know myself I hate to be working on the computer and suddenly nothing.  Everything just comes to a stand still and seems to move slower than molasses in the middle of winter.  With Verizon you will get the fastest Internet backed by Americas largest network. 

     Verizon is one of the largest mobile or cell phone service carriers available and have taken their technology and moved it forward. By connecting to the Verizon Fios today you will be guaranteed to be prepared for the new services available later.  Verizon is just staying one step ahead of the game.  Here are some fun facts about the Verizon Fios:
