DESPERATELY NEED FIOS INTERNET SERVICE IN MY AREA TO START BUSINESSES

A few friends and I are starting up a business and can't deal with the ridiculously low speeds of the satellite internet we have and the limit on downloads and uploads. Currently we do not have FiOS due to the fact that it is unavailable to us as of right now. However, we must have FiOS as soon as possible in order to continue growing and branching out our business. We are willing to do pretty much anything it takes in order to get FiOS where we are, we need something faster, we are sick and tired of waiting nearly 10 minutes just to load google, which is one of the fastest pages to load anywhere else we use the internet. we can't deal with satellite anymore, we need FiOS desperately. There are multiple locations around where we are where FiOS is available, but where we are specifically does not have FiOS yet and if FiOS were available for us to recieve, I know for a fact that there would be a lot more people in our community that would want it as much as we do. We need the speeds and bandwith of FiOS internet due to the fact that our business is primarily website based in which we have to upload and send work to clients as well as recieve and download files and with a very minute limit on our downloads and uploads, it's next to impossible to complete more than a few projects a month which is terrible for our business. Please let me know as soon as possible when It would be possible to recieve FiOS because we need it as soon as we can get it.

I read that due to all the problems Verizon had in Tampa that it was concentrating on it's existing customers and not building out at this current time.

Well, the chance of FiOS because 'you need it' is not going to happen.

 

Saying that, what you should do is COLO a server from a company that has the bandwidth.

 

Then the Web site will run fast for your users.  You getting to it might be slow, but the site itself will be

fast.  The price for a server running a website these days is LESS than FiOS would charge you for the line.  Probably about half.

 

Hope this helps

Colo seems to be the better suggestion here.  or contact VZ Business and see if any options are available to you.
