New Install - no coax in the house

Message 1 of 2

never had Fios before.


have scheduled an install in a couple of weeks, Fios Internet and phone.


there is only one coax cable inside the living room, and that is used for Directv. Also, the place I want the Quantum router to be is at the fron of the house and the Fios box is attached at the back of the house wall (from previous owner).


are they going to route the coax cable from outside the house all around to the front and then open a hole in the wall?


also, I had to sign up for the triple pay even though I don't need tv as I have Directv and three tvs. However, I am thinking of putting a tv anyway in the basement tv and replace one of the Genie Minis with it. However, they said that cheapest DVR option is 2 tuner DVR that only stores 15 HD hours. Lame. Is it worth it?


any coupon codes available for new customers?

They will probably take the easiest route.

So if the easiest way is to run outside the house, they probably will.

If your basement has an open ceiling, they will probably run inside.

I think the 2 tuner DVR has more than 15 hours but not sure exactly how much.

And there aren't any coupon codes but my TV and mail are littered with deals for new customers.

What did they quote you when you ordered the service?
