    FiOS is Verizon's fiber-to-the-premises service. It's probably best known on the Internet for being incredibly fast, and for a commercial starring Michael Bay where he demands things to be "awesome".

    Originally, FiOS was phone and data only, but they've since added FiOS TV, a full digital cable TV service that competes directly with Comcast and the satellite companies. The service uses the newer Motorola QIP boxes, instead of the rather antiquated Cisco/Scientific Atlanta boxes Comcast prefers.

    Like most FTTP services, it's only available in a few places, mostly suburban neighborhoods on the East Coast. Verizon's archrival AT&T has a competing service called U-Verse.
