Default Verizon fios

Ok, im gona have to get verizon fios when it comes out in my area. i currently have verizon dsl @ 768kbps and i get high ping, and crap directv.

anyway i want to know if anyone went from dsl to fios and can tell me if its really "the fastest internet available, period."

and whats the cable(or is it satelite?) service included in the 95$ package (in the US) like on an hdtv? im looking for a fast internet and the best tv i can get.

i know its faster than dsl, i guess noticeably faster by what mammikoura said, and i think its fiberoptic. or something. weird, i thought fiberoptic was glass light strings. but whatever, as long as its faster than dsl and has good cable then im going to get it. erm, once it comes out in my area.
