I live in an area where FiOS is not available yet. I'm patiently waiting.
Where I work is an Army base and the company I work for installs all fiber and copper cable for the internet and phone lines, that is how I know that I want fiber to feed the internet at my home. I can see the difference from when I'm at work and when I'm home and it is remarkable! At home, I have wait times, and windows that freeze because I'm faster than my internet is.
I currently have cable internet at home, but I can only imagine what it will be like when all of us have fiber: no long download times for files, photos and videos on the internet download instantly with no buffering, and I can even have 20 different Firefox windows open (including Mafia Wars, of course!) and my computer won't freeze up from the overload!
Oh... I'm awaiting those days!
I wrote this post as an entry into the "Fiber For All" contest. Wish me luck!
