Considering the torment Verizon provides you (and me and the rest of us poor buggers) they've got a number of ads on Gizmodo. They're brave enough to have a banner advertising FIOS at Home so I clicked. I entered my phone number, clicked GO and eagerly awaited the results of my super-cool 15 Mbps fiber connection. The result: Online Ordering is Currently Unavailable We are unable to check Fios availability and process orders due to a system error. Please try again later. If this problem continues, please call your local Verizon business office to speak with a Verizon Online representative. We apologize for the inconvenience. I consider this a sign from God that it's in my best interest to continue avoiding Verizon.
