“Dear PoP,

I live in Columbia Heights and have been using Comcast for internet but would like to switch. I’m really surprised that other large providers like RCN and Verizon don’t cover the area. I was wondering if you or any of your readers have had a positive experience with another internet provider in the area.”

Back in March ’08 we debated RCN, Verizon, and Comcast. I know that Columbia Heights is slated to get FIOS soon so I’d probably hold out for that. What do you guys think – hold out for FIOS or go with someone else?
