I live in Southeastern Virginia (Hampton Roads Area) where there is a very large Filipino community, mostly active and retired military. We do not have access to FOD in this area. However, I checked your website and found that Filipino On Demand is available in Richmond and its surrounding areas. The other carriers, i.e.., Comcast, Cox and some others, offer FOD in this area. Is it possible for this area to receive FOD, or other Filipino channels with FiOS TV?? In this area, Verizon only offers two Filipino channels, TFC and GMA Pinoy. Your response will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
I am now a subscriber to Fios. I would be very glad to hear you would consider, and add Canada's most hilarious new series. The Drunk And On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour, featuring the three stars of Canada's most popular series, Trailer Park Boys. A lot of U.S. viewers are now well aware of that show, so be the first ones to feature this quirky comedy, and see how large your audience can grow. I am repeating this request to other premium providers too.
I've been watching my firewall log in my Verizon Modem, awful lot of activity from China and Vietnam...
SO, Verizon, here's one for your technical gurus....
You can distribute a series of modems that would allow autonomous access from a specific IP on Verizon that would allow Verizon to look at the firewall logs.
Then automatically download and compile the logs.
Finally when specific hackers are attempting to hack into user computers, throw up automatic blocks in your routers against those IP addresses that have been recorded as attempting to hack.
These lists can be active for say 30 days or so or a set parameter limiting the number of IP addresses to block. When the lists extends, an offending IP address will roll off the list.
Theoretically this can be all done automatically, with distribution of modified modems, and lighten the load on your network while providing additional security for users.
OK, so it is a bit of a chore, but just think of the favorable publicity this can bring you.
"Through sampling of world wide attempts by rouge computer hackers, Verizon now stops hackers in their tracks!"
This can also be extended to other Verizon products and services.
Hey, one last thing, you do this and I expect free internet service for life. After all, what's one free-be with all the great publicity this would bring you! ( Besides that, I'm an old f@rt pushin' 60. )
Do away with E Mail Access. I don't think I should have to put a password in the system everytime I want to read my e mails. I put my e mail access in the computer and it advises me that it i good for two weeks and then the next time (the next day) Itry to get my e mails it makes me retype/reenter my password. I don't need the agrivation. Do away with the pass word and let me go directly to my emails
I called verizon couple times and they told me that they can't refund me the money and the package is 99 dollars i hate it because if they can't refund it why dont they make it little hard on this type of order like people have to call and add it by phone i believe my daughter ordered she is only 4 years old and she use to play with the remote control and matbe she is the only one who could done i put password since de insedent
The past few times (maybe 5) I have called for questions on WebMail (it's working, just have other questions), EVERY time I get a message like - WebMail is down in your area, it will be up again about (insert time EXACTLY two hours in the future here).
This makes it obvious that Verizon is either incompetent by not knowing what is going on with services, or untruthful, trying to put off customers in hopes they will just forget about it.
I've seen it mentioned here in response to several of the idea requests that IMG 1.8 will have the idea incorporated or as a step toward implementing an idea. Or that IMG 1.9 will be going out after that and might address certain ideas. It is great to see this sort of response, but that has me wondering... as the IMG updates are finished and released is there any location that details what exactly they contain? And if not... well, here is the idea: Could you maybe set up an area that shows the update info. I still have IMG 1.7.1 here and It would be nice to see exactly what I have to look forward to when IMG 1.8, 1.9, etc. gets here.

In the position of Fiber Network Field Technician (FNFT), I complete assigned tasks involved with consumer and business FIOS installations. Many Customers inquire about Verizon’s ability to set up home or business networks to accommodate any number of their wireless devices. In many instances, the “physical size” of the structure, a house, a building, or the like, “limits” the effectiveness of the wireless signal the BHR router can emit. The idea I propose is for Verizon to seriously consider involvement and possible implement Power Line Communication (PLC) technology in conjunction with FIOS in instances where the Customer requests home or business networking. I think this could become a “substantial” revenue stream for the organization.
Power line communication or power line carrier (PLC), as described via Wikipedia, is also known as Power line Digital Subscriber Line (PDSL), power line telecom (PLT), power line networking (PLN), or Broadband over Power Lines (BPL). These are all described as systems for carrying data on a conductor also used for electric power transmission.
Electrical power is transmitted over high voltage transmission lines, distributed over medium voltage, and used inside buildings at lower voltages. Power line communications can be applied at each stage. Most PLC technologies limit themselves to one set of wires (for example, premises wiring), but some can cross between two levels (for example, both the distribution network and premises wiring). Typically the transformer prevents propagating the signal, which requires multiple PLC technologies to be used to form very large networks. Follow this link for an in-depth description of this technology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_line_communication
Additionally, Verizon could possibly benefit from becoming involved with the HomePlug Alliance which is an industry Alliance comprised of industry leaders at each level of the value chain - from Technology to Services & Content. The Alliance members bring necessary capabilities and a financial commitment to the successful launch of the technology.
Service and Content
New services, content to pull demand for network devices, requirements for network to support services, usage models, provisioning, customer care.
Channels for sales & support of networked devices, installation and support services, consumer education.
Connected devices to enable new classes of services via the internet or other networks – PC, CE, Networking.
Software services and applications to simplify setup and use of the network.
Cost effective silicon with a variety of feature sets to support a broad variety of products.
Enabling technology that meets requirements for performance, cost, and is scalable to future generations.
The Alliance's mission is to enable and promote rapid availability, adoption and implementation of cost effective, interoperable and standards-based home powerline networks and products.
This article provides an in depth overview of the HomePlug technology. It discusses the merits of power line based home networking in comparison to available options, and addresses the challenges of communicating in the power line environment, where time varying interference and frequency selective impairments require sophisticated signal processing techniques. It then describes how HomePlug's technology meets those challenges. Follow this link to the HomePlug Power Alliance website: http://www.homeplug.org/home/
In closing, I think Verizon could realize a positive revenue generator by implementation of this type of technology in conjunction with the most advanced fiber optic network available to consumers today.
We cant rely on cell phone reception in all homes. I shouldnt have to wait 2 weeks for new telephone service. I was told by the rep that created my account, that if I called back the next day once the order went through, dispatch would be happy to expedite my service date. Other utility companies protect families with children under the age of one.. Why cant phone companies also??
Dear Verizon; I can fully understand you have good reasons to discontinue these services. However, let me express my reasons why they should continue !!! I have experienced several times, when checking on the time and weather , other similar services to be too unreliable and if you need the info quickly, you need to try another service, because they are unavailable or lengthy responses, even the tech services. Your services were always breif and clear, saving me time and agravation !!!! I may be the only one requesting this, but it was important to me. In this busy world clarity and brevity are essential. The process to get tech support needs also to be clear, especially to those of us who are technically challenged !!!!! Gratefully, Hairstylist
