Hey gang,

I'm moving out to NOVA in 2 days and am looking for a good internet provider. I just need high-speed, no digital TV or phone services. I've heard that FIOS is the fastest thing out but it doesn't seem available at the apartment complexes I'm looking to rent from.

Is FIOS widely available in NOVA yet?

It should be yes. I've lived in both arlington and springfield and it is available. My girlfriend in reston also has it.

As of now, it seems like it's only available in neighborhoods and new apartment complexes. Verizon hasn't gotten around to hooking up all of the old apartment buildings yet.

I definitely recommend it though... faster and a better value than Comcast or Cox for what you get.

They are just bringing it to Kingstowne, not sure if they have it in the Apts in this area or not. It is very difficult to do around older buildings as it is an underground cable. I think they are attacking more profitable areas first. Those that they can dig a few trenches to reach the most customers, Town houses etc, with grass. And of course new homes.

I am a Verizon employee-and a Fios specialist. It should be available in most places in NOVA.
