    I've got a 6000/768Kbps DHCP connection now. How much faster or better is FIOS than DSL?

    My brother had FIOS and it is great. I think he was getting like 15mb down. I dont remember the number off the top of my head. I know it was alot better than the DSL. I wish I could get FIOS but its not available in our area.

    I have FiOS (20MBps down/5 MBps up)

    Torrents and stuff go so ridiculously fast, it's insane.

    The annoying thing is that if you live in a big city (like me), they install this ugly box on your wall. Is it worth it?

    ABSOLUTELY.
