Ok   the disconnect  issue  seems resolved  now  the connection  speed  is so  slow    it is like  we  have dial-up.  Can't  watch  vidio  on  netflix  like we used to.   Searching  the  web   is so  slow pages time out, what   is the excuse  now?

Do resarch on DSL... it is horrible compared to FIOS or even cable.  Unless you are close to the distribution center DSL can be as slow as dial-up.  At my wife's aparrment she switch from Cablevision to Verizon DSL.  That last 2 days since the connection was as slow as dialup.  I also looked up the distance from the CO and it was right at the edage where don't offer serice.  Of course verizon denied this even after I showed them the website.  


Anyway much happier with FIOS.  The internet connection is amazing beyound belief.  The TV and phone are OK, but the integration services (STB widgets, callerid, TV anywhere, Flex view etc) )and customer service from Verizon are always terrible.
