Has anyone switched from Comcast to Verizon Fios and thought that was a good move?
I currently have Comcast but I've had trouble the past few months with my internet connection. It goes down constantly and I have to reset the modem a few times a day. Yesterday, I had to reset my modem twice during a show, wait for it to reboot and then start the show again 15 minutes later. The Comcast app on my phone says I have a weak and unstable signal. I've called Comcast, they've re-synched the modem from their end a few times, had me replace my modem and sent a tech around but they can't seem to find the problem except to tell me that I have a "high upstream rate" but then don't do anything about it.
I'm thinking about just giving up on Comcast and moving over to Fios but a friend of mine has it and thinks it's not as fast or reliable as cable. We have it at work too and it has issues with speed, where it's not as fast as they told us it would be.
I do a lot of streaming with Netflix, Hulu and Prime. I rarely watch broadcast TV so I don't even have a ton of channels. Essentially I'm paying just for fast internet and that's about $95 a month since I don't watch the TV channels at all.
I know there are people who have "cut the cord" but how do they watch Netflix and other streaming services without a cable or fiber optic connection? I really want a fast internet (right now my speed, when working, is about 70 mbps) so I want something similar but consistent and Comcast is just not helping me with my internet connection outages.
I live in New Jersey and my main options seem to be Comcast or Fios but neither one seem to be that desirable. Are there other options for a good streaming connections? I'd really appreciate any suggestions!
