As you may know, we’re moving to Pennsylvania next month, and I’m using this change as an excuse to re-evaluate the personal technology we use at home. And hopefully get some of it right for a change.
The most fundamental technology, of course, is the Internet connection. I was led to believe—and was excited by this—that we’d be able to get FIOS service here in Pennsylvania, but that was revealed to be a sad joke: When I checked their site from here, rather than at home, FIOS gleefully told me it “had me covered.” And then offered DSL plans with speeds of .5 to 15 Mbps. I can get 1 Gbps (1000 Mbps) from FIOS at home.
