FIOS Router and Other ISPs
Moving shortly to an area that only offers Comcast and Verizon FIOS. Existing resident had Verizon FIOS, so the ONT box is still in the basement. From doing a little research, it sounds like I need some special equipment (either Verizon FIOS' modem/router combo, or a NIC and my own router) to get it to work. Doing Cable + Internet + Phone, and the box is currently set up to output coax. I understand I can try to get it to output ethernet, but then I have to convert ethernet to coax for TV/Phone.
All that said, how good are the newer Verizon FIOS routers? And if down the road I were to switch to Comcast, can the Verizon FIOS router be used as a regular router (I have a DOCSIS 3.0 modem already)? I had been meaning to buy a new router, so if the Verizon FIOS router can be used as a standalone and is relatively good, at least it won't be a total loss.
I did a forum search and the most recently stuff I could find was like 2010, which is why I am asking now, given stuff has changed in the last few years.
