As I understand it, Bios is Verizon's trade name for its fastest DSL service. I have no idea why it chose to name itself seemingly after PC technology.

Hi David,

I have no problem with my own ISP, so I'm not getting into this. But what do you mean by the Verizon bios? I thought bios was a technical term, a programmer's term for some essential component of an operating system, or something like that. Is it also a term that attaches to broadband Internet service providers, or specifically to Verizon's technical specifications? Sorry, I'm just not very technically sophisticated. Thanks for explaining.

I have used verizon bios for some time. I find it easy to use, very few provider problems and their customer service has been very patient and competent in helping with the few problems I have had.

I use jfw 7.1 and jfw 9 and both work well with Verizons.

I used to have cablevision and they were awful so I am glad I switched about a year ago.
