No they don't, but as said in my last post they might be putting one in place but I very highly doubt that will happen since they have a very stable network.

I have not had an experience with FiOS, as I am on Comcast (COMFAIL) and I know that comcast throttles, but from what I have heard from some of my friends that do have it, that they do not throttle.

I have no experience of throttling with FiOS or Comcast. They both have been stable 24/7 for a few years with no downtime or any slowness or issues..

Youtube has a good video comparing how fttp=(fios) vs traditional coax (your cable TV provider) is brought to your home. Type in Verizon FiOS vs. Cable in the search.

Can someone tell me how to by pass the uTube throttle (i.e fttp, or save a utube video via torrent)? I'm not sure any of these will work considering my ISP gives 90% of bandwidth to the gov_accounts. So what are the alternatives (back to microwave dish?)

i am a victim of p2p throttling. My ISP says I should be getting 300kbs-500kbs that is what i get when i speed test my browser using http://dslreports.com/speedtest However when i use p2p/fttp service i only see 2kbs-4kps in the download speed status. My ISP uses ipv6 andso i am pretty sure it is happen on this side of the pond. Is there any method for tricking the download to go faster? Ubuntu takes all night just to update.

When using p2p transfers, the speeds are dependent on everyone else's download/upload speeds.

I have FIOS and I have been a very happy customer. I pay for a 20Mb/20Mb connection and on most speed tests, I get 30Mb/25Mb. I haven't had any problems with YouTube lately either.
