Let me add that I have never joined this board before but did it solely to express this opinion. I have been a loyal  verizon customer for years, and the board president of my 90 unit apartment complex. I wanted to express my extreme displeasure at verizon's strongarming tactics and assure you that if verizon does not fix this issue, that our apartment complex with move over to comcast or another ISP.

 

In addition, we will raise up the  issue of the need for municipal broadband with our elected representatives at federal, state, and local levels.

 

Yours truly.

I agree and I will Cancel.  I pay Verizon too much money to have you play this game for your greed.

I WILL be canceling this trash FIOS service. It took 5 minutes for this page to load for me to reply. I have a gigabit capable hardwire pc, CAT 6 ethernet cable connecting the pc and outdated router verizon has provided. I pay $300 a month for the 500/100 mbps service but can't get HD quality on Netflix, Hulu or Youtube. Here's the proof of the speeds I'm pay verizon for.

Has anyone tried one of the Smart DNS solutions from, Unblock Us, Smarty DNS, TrickByte DNS, OverPlay, etc., to bypass Verizon's "throttled" path(s) to Netflix?

 

Do these smart DNS alternatives improve video streaming performance?

Signed. I pay Verizon for high speeds for ALL of my Internet usage and they are failing to provide that. Either they follow net neutrality rules and stop throttling or I'm taking my $400 monthly bill somewhere else.

Oh, you didn't hear? Verizion recently won a court case which essentially kills Net Neurtrality, so no, they don't have to follow its rules. Welcome to the world of corporate greed.

Recently switched from Cablevision to Fios and already regretting it. The good news is Cablevisoin is offering to buy out my contract. Just might have to take them up on the offer.
