Verizon is coming tomorrow to install my triple play - phone,tv, and internet. I got a bit nervous after reading the negative comments about the post install service as well as inconsistent / poor wireless connections. Currently I have a comcast HSI connected with Motorola cable modem and Linksys flashed with Tomato firm ware. I have limited HD channels but no problem with the internet connections at all. My question is, should I tell the Verizon tech in advance that I want ethernet connection (vs. coax) for the verizon router or bridge my current Linksys with whatever router that Verizon provided? Or should I wait and see how the services are after they're installed. I'm trying to be proactive since I don't have the luxury to wait for tech support if my phone and internet services are interrupted. I use internet, wireless network, wireless printer, and fax constantly for work.
Thank you in advance.
Take the VZ bundle with a smile. I switched over from COMCAST and have never regretted. The non HD station reception quality borders on HD quality-much better than COMCAST. The HD stations are significantly better than COMCAST (heard it was due to cable compression of the HD signal). My internet is much faster 20/5 for the same price. And the VZ bundle price keep changing since they try to match COMCAST prices. The various boxe rentals are cheaper than COMCAST also
Bottom line, COMCAST when they had the monolpoly kept raising theri prices. Now VZ keeps adding services at a lower price. I fidure I am saving $60.00 per month based on my COMCAST bills from 2008.
