    Ordered the FIOS today, they will be out next Weds 13th to setup the FIOS connection I also opted for the Preffered HDTV service with 1 HD DVR ($54.99+$24.00), the peramnent phone service ($10.00/month) = $88.99+tax= total of $109.65 a month plus whatever the HOA FIOS (estimated $69) rate will be. So I am thinking that I will be about at the same price as I was before (about $11.58 addtional) with more bandwidth (1 Gig, HELL YAH!!) and more HDTV channels. I guess I am okay with this!!

    Also Verizon will provide the router for the fiber at no addtional cost, I hope I can still use my patch panel in my garage as the point of entry for the fibre as my house is wired throughout.

    Can't wait!

    If you don't want the router (or you want to buy one), can you get a discount on the monthly fee?

    I didn't ask but I think it's part of the $69 HOA negotiated price, because he said there is "no charge" so I am assuming that it's part of the HOA pricing, maybe someone can chime into help answer.

    Our installation is scheduled for Monday 3/11.

    WOW $21 admin fee and plus the other $142 HOA fee ?!!??! hmm maybe I will cancel the TV service after the first month and stick with my DirecTV now service,

    I sure miss paying only $265 a month HOA fee for everything when I first moved to Southern Walk.

    Hello. I'm not sure if this is the correct thread, but I have a few questions about the install:

    1. Are they dropping the line all the way to the house (i.e., the shallow trench a few inches deep that runs all the way to your house control panel) or are they only installing that final "drop" line if you order service? I've heard both scenarios, but wanted to hear from one of the 300+ that are done.

    2. If you have ordered, how long did it take from your telephone (or online) order to the time you were "up and running" for video services (i.e., all boxes installed and TVs showing a picture?

    Thanks!

    They install the line all the way to the house.

    My fios installation was done yesterday, took about 1.5 hrs. I only opted for internet. Getting 900/900 on wired connection.
    Canceled Openband immediately.

    HAHAHAHA LOL!!

    When you say they install all the way into the house do you get to select where the fibre comes into? I would like for it to come into where my current open band fibre lines comes in, which is to my garage to a patch panel that my house is wired up to.

    My panel is in the basement and they hooked it up to it. That's the same place where openband line came in. Just replaced my switch with verizon router.

    You should complain directly to Verizon. As discussed multiple times on this forum, the agreement that we have as an HOA, for a variety of reasons mentioned, is far less than what you can get as an individual outside of the SW. With enough complaints or a lack of video and phone subscribers, maybe (unlikely, though) Verizon will provide some incentives to SW residents.

    My Fios Internet Installation was completed minutes ago. All looks good so far. Fairly straightforward. My OB panel was in my basement, so the tech fished the Fios Connection through the same conduit as the OB cables by using an existing unused land line telephone wire.
    Just replaced by OB connection to the Verizon router at the OB Panel. Everything else was the same.

    All good so far. Install took a total of about 1.5 hours, from the time my doorbell rang. I was disconnected for about 15 - 20 mins total during the switch over. You need to be available to make sure that you set up your Verizon account etc once the connection is set up and active.

    I only activated internet.

    I think the point of the post from at least what I can tell is to take the "Captain obvious" perspective and point out there are better deals out there for bundling all three services, within a two year time committment.

    In the two year approach, if I add up all the savings, those are substaintial. However, the video package offered for $79.99 is the most basic video service, and does not include the FiOS router. It also includes early termination of $350. Just some details in the fine print worth pointing out. The other thing with that is, what happens in month 25? Anyone have experiences to share with re-negotiation? Can you go month to month at current rates? Do discounts and credits expire? Are people switching back and forth to save money between Verizon and Comcast?

    For sri_n, any reason you didn't want the phone or video? Were they too much $? You didn't want them in the first place? You have plans to stream and/or use VOIP or cell phones?

    Sunstoner - I subscribed to internet only right now as that was the primary necessity, and to get OB out of my house. I have had DirectTV for the past year, and I use a VoIP phone, neither of which I plan to change at this point.
