Fios is the prefered system in my building (in that management pushes it), but since I work for Comcast Sports Net and get cable for free I see no need to change. Not a lot of people seem to be taking up Fios - I see a lot of dishes and the Comcast trucks are there a lot.

They do offer it in my apartment building in Stoneham: they fed fiber 
through the complex about a year ago, and have offering service since 
October '06.  I'd consider it, but I don't like the fact that they 
insist on disconnecting copper POTS lines to subscribers.
