I'm not Dave, but I'm the person who asked what FIOS means. I know about 
those all in one deals from the cable companies or whatever this is about. I 
get their pitches in junk postal mail all the time, scan the brochures in 
Open Book, and throw them away. I'm fine with my Verizon cell phone, AT&T 
land line, and very economical ISP subscription to DSL Extreme. The thing 
is, maybe I don't read far enough through those brochures to see the term 
FIOS, or maybe only fairly tec savvy people ever mention it? That could be, 
which means I'm just out of the loop about that category. No problem.

Thanks a lot for explaining.

Hello Dave.

There is a pc involved

Fios is a fiber optic connection to the internet.

It also delivers television and telephone service

Something like the cable company does

You can have an all in one package from them.

I'm lost. Are you guys saying that you are using the television receiver and
your ISP service as your internet browser, and have JAWS installed on it? In
other words, is there no PC-compatible computer involved in this?

Sorry if this is naive  but somehow all this doesn't make sense to me.
