Bummer! Oh well, Cox is it, then. Any chance FIOS will arrive in the next few years?

Possibly. Apparently its a cost issue. We are a much lower population density than other more urban areas. SO their return on investment is lower. All who live here would love to have an alternative to Cox. ( especially me)

White Hall in Toano is one of the only communities around that has FIOS. Its so new that they put in the fiber optic before it was built.

It seems that Verizon's FiOS expansion is over, with the exception of areas (mostly large cities) where they're still pursuing franchise build-out obligations. Verizon Again Confirms FiOS Expansion is Over - Sorry Buffalo, Alexandria, Baltimore and Boston | DSLReports.com, ISP Information

I thought the title of this thread was amusing, as there are not really many "options"!

To be honest, Cox service is pretty good (other than their DVR menu being clunky) and you can usually complain about your bill to get it lowered.

Nice selling point for that development in Toana. I'll bet they promote that quite a bit.
