Re: [PLUG] Verizon FiOS Business Internet Questions

I have FiOS small business. I'm very happy with it and generally their support
is quite good. In my experience they do not filter any ports inbound or
outbound. I run my own mail server, web server and tunnel SSH in. Any issues
I've had in the past were self-inflicted :-).

hair cheaper, and the speeds are faster, especially in upload speeds).

I run the full gamut of servers (DNS, SMTP, HTTP, etc).  Comcast business does
not filter these.  I've read Verizon's Acceptable Use Policy and the only thing
I can find is that Verizon filters port 25 outbound.  I therefore will have to
relay through verizon's eMail server (like I do for Comcast's server).

I have a dynamic IP with comcast, but it never changes as long as my modem
never changes.  I presume the same thing will happen with Verizon.

Anybody else using Verizon and running their own servers?  Any issues?
