I am located in Tampa FL. We do have FIOS in my area but unfortunately it was recently sold from Verizon to Frontier Communications. If you are not familiar with Frontier consider yourself lucky. I have never ran into a more poorly run organization of this size. Previously we had Verizon Fios for as long as I can remember and they were EXCELLENT. But since Frontier took over it's been nothing but problems from service related issues to slower speeds to useless "customer service."
Anyway I didn't come here to complain, I am in need of a better ISP. After this mess, we are ready to cut the cord but we still need a good and reliable ISP to get this done. Unfortunately our current provider is the only FIOS provider in our area. I know technology is always advancing and I am certainly not up on all current tech so I would like some input on if there's anything else that would compare to the speeds we get from FIOS (when it's working) on a different platform.
It is my understanding that the only options in my area are:
Frontier Communications (current ISP and very bad)
Charter (just bought out Brighthouse and is DSL)
Neither of these options are very good and Frontier is the only one with FIOS. I am open to other suggestions, maybe there's another provider I'm not aware of or new technology on the horizon. Please help me get out from under this horrible Frontier Communication company. I am afraid that as bad as they are they are still the best option in my area when they are working.
