Verizon FiOS vs Cablevision

When comparing Verizon FiOS to Cablevision users need to think about more than just price. While Cable Vision (Optimum Online) does have a similar service to FiOS when you compare the technology (coaxial cable) that Cablevision runs on, it is no wonder users prefer Verizon FiOS to Cablevision.

In fact a recent study by the FCC shows that Cablevision's older hardware means that many users have found significantly slower than advertised speeds. If you are choosing between FiOS and Cablevision we suggest you go with FiOS because it runs purely on fiber optic technology. What do fiber optics mean to you? It means you'll get faster internet speeds and crystal clear picture quality because the digital signal isn't compressed. When you choosing between Cablevision and FiOS the choice is clear. Go with Verizon FiOS.
