intended for cdt, so reposting to proper place with some followup
During the recent FIOS discussion, I had nothing to add, so I didn't.
Its been fine since it was installed 2+ years ago.
Just recently, I had some issues, and I wanted to pass along what I
encountered for the benefit of the group.
At first, both wired and wireless went dead. A power cycle fixed it,
and the wired connections had no furthur problems. The wireless was
not working. The first time or 2 the Verizon "In Home Agent&qu...[telecom]recorded telecom messages

I'm looking for an attorney in the Philadelphia area who specializes
in land easements. We have a telecom company looking to put some
antenna's, and I guess transmitters on our property and want someone
to review the agreements. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Michael, you're a very wise man.

these suggestions to get you started:

There is a good article called "Cut your telecom bills" in the May,
2011 issue of Consumer Reports magazine.
There are several parts of it that caught my eye right away: a section
titled "Some fiber really isn't", covering some of the physical-layer
issues we've been discussing here, and a section on the "Ooma" VoIP
service, plus a section on "The benefits of bundling and bargaining".
I'm curious what the Digest's readers think about the article.

Hurricane Irene is expected to hit the eastern US this weekend with
very heavy rains and high winds. Considerable flooding is expected.
Also expected are many power failures. This is because the ground is
already saturated from recent rain storms, the hurricane will add
considerable rain, and high winds will knock many trees into wires.
It is expected to take a few days to restore power.
It will be interesting to see how the telecom providers react to the
storm to keep service running in terms of landlines, cellular, and
Internet traffic. Will traditional landline central office...Re: [telecom] Cellphones and driving [Telecom]

Repeated studies have shown their is no difference in the
distraction caused by cellphone to your ear or hands-free. It's
apparently the conversation, not the holding of the phone to your ear.

Here's a perfect conversation piece for those awkward social
situations when someone asks what you did for a living in the dark
ages before computers: http://tinyurl.com/ygltn8r .
If you wind up buying it, feel free to invite me over to hook it up. ;-)
Of course, if you _do_ want to hook something up to a computer for
demonstrations, something more "modern" may be in order, so here's
some info on other equipment that is available for pickup in New
