One other thing to remember with FIOS is that as part of having fiber run
directly to your house by Verizon is that you *will* lose access to the
copper pairs that were already there. The last step in the successful
fiber installation is the destruction of the original copper 

No more DSL option. Your choices (if you decided you didn't like FIOS, for
whatever reason), would now just be your cable provider (if you have one),
or a wireless or satellite-based ISP. No more "telecom"-based services.
