I understand the Qwest Fiber service to be nothing more than marketing 
hype.  They do not deliver "FIOS Like" / Fiber to the home, rather they 
have re-wired a number of their neighborhood nodes with Fiber.  You 
still have copper running to the house and DSL delivering the service.  
Has anyone here in Omaha used it yet?  I know that it is not available 
yet where I live (Ralston) and we have a Qwest CO right across the way.
