I live in Clifton and have Fios 30 Mbps. After a month of service had to replace the router since there were constant drops of the service. The speed is good, downloading between 1.8 and 4 Mbps. If you can ignore some drops of the internet "once in a while", the service is good.
On the other hand, before replacing the router the cable was working perfectly. After the replacement, doesn't matter what channel are you watching, all of them have these hiccups every 3/5 minutes. Its very annoying! But, since we don't watch much TV anyways, we can live with it.

For the basic cable+HD channels+30 Mbps internet connection I'm paying $129.39
Hope this helps!

That's pretty expensive for inconsistent service. I also live in Clifton and use Time Warner and no problem thus far and I pay under a $100 for high speed internet and HD channel lineup. Nothing compares to when I had UVerse though, I miss it

I was thinking $129 is a lot too...I'd expect things to be flawless for that price. Perhaps my expectations are off. I have home security with Complete Protection (Cincy Bell), so my internet rate is only $35. I don't have cable. So yeah, $35 is cheap, but like I said, I don't need super fast speeds, I just need the crap to work consistently.

A couple of months ago Cincinnati Bell completed their FIOS installation in our neighborhood. They were Johnny on the sport with a sales rep to sign people up. I said I would think about it. The next day a TW rep was at the door offering a reduction in price to stay with them. I said OK and signed up. A week later Cincinnati Bell was back offering an even lower price for 30MBPS Internet, 2 HD Interface boxes & quite a few HD channels TV plus Digital Phone for $104 per month. Since this was about $30 less than we had been paying TW just TV and RR I said go ahead.

So far the reliability has been OK, I would say on a par with TW. I don't know about the router since I unplugged their immediately and put my wireless router back in since it has a nice utility to manage it with from the PC.

Speed wise the CB FIOS is no better than what I had with TW, averaging about 10NBPS download and 2MBPS upload. Since I have a 100MPBS router and PC interfaces should not have anything to do with it.

Doh, I didn't think of that. Maybe I shold put my linksys router back in and see if its fixed. The ones they put in seem like crap.

I've had Cincinnati Bell since I moved here a year ago. 30Mb/s download speed, 10Mb/s upload, fiber-optic. Never had any issues with the router and rarely ever experience slowdown. I'd recommend it if you're moving to the Gaslight area.
