Rangers or Islanders?
Robert Moses or Jones Beach?
They are plenty of Long Island-centric debates, but when it comes to Internet and TV service (OK, and phone, but what's a landline?), the heavyweight battle is between Verizon's FiOS and Cablevision's Optimum.
I'm posing this Sound Off today for purely selfish reasons. I'm moving into a new place in a month and from what I can tell, promotional packages for service from both companies are similar in price.
So, what I want to know is how they stack up in performance (i.e. Internet speed/reliability, TV channel selection, etc..). Has anyone had experiences with both Verizon and Optimum? Are there pros and cons to each provider?
Vote in today's poll below and share thoughts on the topic in the comments section.
Editor's note: We are aware that FiOS is not offered in some areas as this article is posted across several Patch sites. If that's the case for you, we'd still love to hear about your experiences/satisfaction level with Optimum.
