If Verizon deploys their new Fios (fiber optic) DSL service in your area jump on it, it fookin screams, latency is almost non existent. Better, cheaper, what more could you want. Now I have to wait for the rest of the net to catch up. Really easy to see who has the slow servers now. Happy to report that BD is loading just as snappy as always. The basic package is 5Mbps inbound 2Mbps outbound, 35$ a month. The 15/5 plan is 48$ (er, something). And check this, you can get up to 200Mbps if you want. zooooooommm! Not many areas have it yet. Menifee, Murrieta, a small section of Temecula(mine, hehe), and a few other cities in So Cal. But they're going to town on the roll out so it should be avail in most areas soon.
