Upgrading with Fios

During my transition from being a Stay at Home Mom to a Work At Home Mom, I have been lucky to have great service through Verizon Fios. We have always had land line, internet, television and wireless service with Fios, and as our family grew and our use of iPads, computers, and cell phones grew with it. Considering that we hadn’t even looked at upgrading speed options since we first got Fios (in 2008), and our usage has definitely increased, I recently upgraded and am thrilled with how fast I can search sites, update blog posts – even with the house full of people streaming on their devices.

The speed and convenience that I now take for granted was highlighted even more  after a weekend at my parent’s house that definitely does not have Fios, and where I had to navigate their patchwork of services. Next project, set the parents up with Fios!

The Verizon representative was thorough, knowledgeable, professional and courteous. After the super easy, non-intrusive installation was complete, he helped me run a speed test on the computers and installed another Verizon router upstairs (we have a weird, old house) so now all of the house is covered. He also patiently answered all of my many questions. Great customer service again. Thanks Verizon!

So, if you have Verizon already – here is the Verizon Speed Test – give it a try. Don’t have Verizon yet? Just click here and see if it is in your area. Verizon Fios Boston

So while I am occasionally still locked out of Netflix, I now have the fastest download speed available and I am never at a loss for something great to watch.

A Mother’s Day to Remember

Choosing Mother’s Day gifts has always been one of my favorite things to do, and except for the year I bought my mom a super ugly porcelain (!) flower pin from a church bazaar, I think I’ve nailed it. Luckily for my mom, my gift giving skills have improved, as has my access to shops. And as a Mom, I appreciate and love the simplest of . . . → Read More: A Mother’s Day to Remember

Traveling with Fios

Over April break, our family traveled together, and with two teens in tow, you know we had our tech at the ready. Unsure of the available in flight and potentially long airport layover entertainment options, we all downloaded books and movies to our devices at the same time one day. Luckily, we have Verizon FIOS and it was a snap because of Verizon’s super fast . . . → Read More: Traveling with Fios

April Break in NYC

Sometimes a few days out of your routine is all you need. We love to zip to NYC – so close, so much to do! Whether you’re into Broadway shows (check out A View from the Mezzanine for great tips), are taking college tours, (NYU, Barnard, Fordhan, Pace, Cooper-Union, FIT, Columbia or any listed here), or if museums are your reason to travel to the . . . → Read More: April Break in NYC
