Here is some screen shots of a speed test before and after.
Goto: http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ to see how you compare.
Before with Comcast high speed internet:
After with FiOS from Verizon Online.
The FiOS install comes with some nice hardware.
Inside there are 4 POTS ports, a coxial connector, and a RJ45 for network.
Looks like Verizon is getting ready to offer video service soon.
They install a Fiber muxer / network interface on the outside of the home.
Then, on the inside there is a battery backup system, so if the power goes out you still have internet connection.
