Our local telco company within the last couple years installed Fiber to the home in our area and it going to start providing TV service on the 1st of September.
I was thinking to switching to it then as when bundling with other services like telephone it's cheaper then cable.
Unfortunately unlike the cable company they require the use of a set top box which I don't think will work with my PVR-500 as well.
I called them up to see what information I could get on the set top boxes and they said the following:
1. The set top is Scientific Atlanta model 303, 403 or 630 depending on what you ordered.
2. You only need one set top box per every 3 tvs.
3. The boxes have USB but not Firewire.
