More on FIOS

14 April, 2005 (14:18) | Services | By: Lyle

Talked with a friend tonight who is up on Verizon’s Fios service. So, it does exist!

He’s very happy, it’s very cheap. As you surf around you’ll find out that this cheap, high-speed services does not provide a fixed IP. You can get one, but then it’s a $100 service (according to Internet hearsay), so, no longer cheap. Although cheaper and faster than a T1 line to your house…

Possibly DynDNS could deal with this, and maybe the IP doesn’t shift often. Don’t know — seems risky for running a web or Email server. Would be fine for a Half Life server, of course.
