FIOS Gig-Ethernet Installation

30 July, 2019 (15:17) | Hardware, Services | By: Lyle

My DSL line served me well, almost 20 years. It lived through 4 different ISPs, each getting bought and sold along the way, but always the same circuit. When it was first installed I felt like the fastest man on the Internet. 1.5M downloads, 786K uploads, low latency. That was a long time ago. The […]

GoDaddy WordPress Service

24 July, 2015 (00:59) | Services | By: Lyle

I’m in the process of relocating my travel log from Blogger to another folder I’ve set up with a copy of WordPress.  I did this all from the GoDaddy account management page.  They’ve really improved their management tools, and it was completely easy to do.  The only mistake I made was getting impatient with the […]

In Flight WiFi on Southwest

7 September, 2014 (23:18) | Services | By: Lyle

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, […]
