I switched from DSL to Verizon FiOS , how much better is FiOS than DSL? And can you connect to PS2 online with FiOS.

From the amazing transfer speeds I've heard about from fiber optics, I would say it is extremely better than DSL, as the thousands of little fibers are able to transfer data much quicker than DSL is able to (I think DSL speeds are normally around 800-1200kb/s).

If it uses the Cat5 cable (the slightly larger phone cable thing, what you use with DSL and all other broadband connections), then yes, you should be able to just as easily as you did on DSL.

Indeed, FiOS is significaint bump up from DSL, and yes, it will use the Cat cable, so it's gonna work with your PS2.

FiOS is only availiable in a few dozen towns, where are you that you're lucky enough to have it?
