Confirmation from the competition: Bill Schrader got 15/15 biz FIOS
installed about 10 months ago.  At time of installation I ran iPerf
and nuttcp on it and got 15.1 mbit/sec each way, single TCP stream, to
my stuff at Equinix.

Ping stats from the firewall are equally encouraging - particularly in
the jitter department:

pfsense:~#  ping -i 0.1 -c 500 -q
PING ( 56 data bytes

--- ping statistics ---
500 packets transmitted, 500 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 5.243/7.856/13.787/1.431 ms
