A general question about fios installation. I know that they will run fiber optics wiring from the pole to your home then they will utilize the existing coaxial inside your house to get the service to each tv/modem. Does the existing coaxial wiring hurt reception/signal strength. If so would verizon be able to re-wire inside using fiber optics and at what cost? Thanks

If you tell the installer to run new cable, he will. It's part of the install. Their cable works best. If you have cable already, just cut it short and make it disappear, then they'll be forced to replace it.

I don't think so yet. Of course, hiding the profile IS a tip-off to shenanigans....

Can we say....cable guy! This thread that taz is making reminds me of Jim Carey in the Cable Guy movie! Haha. He was obsessed with working for the cable company. This is hysterical! although, I think he is pequadude too... Had an incident with him one time on here and was done being entertained by him. FIOS is better and that is it. No ifs, ands or buts.

Cable Guy! LOL...

I don't get why Cablevision (of all things) would be so important to someone to create multiple identities.

But I've been wrong before ...
Did you ever see the movie "CAble Guy" with Jim Carrey? If so, do you remember how obsessed the character was in the movie. I think this is the "real" cable guy! LOL..

First off no such thing as fiber wiring inside the house. As long as your coax wiring is #6 and not #59 (which is the skinnier more flimsy wiring)there should be no problems reusing what is there. If it is the #59 wiring the tech will replace it. Also the tech will change your splitters and try to clean up any mess of wires not being used. Any other ??? please ask.
