Any opinions on Verizon FiOS for business?

Hello,
We need to replace our backup ISP and are limited to very few options in this office building. Verizon FiOS is one of two options (and the fastest).  I am interested in hearing from others' experience using Verizon Business FiOS -- good, bad, indifferent.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Yes, we had Comcast Business internet and we've switched over to Verizon 2 years ago.
Problem with service outage can hit any company so when we've lost internet because of accident on the local route and truck cut cable we was without internet for 2 days. This is disaster for company so we've decided install Verizon as failover provider.
Since then we had 3 time internet signal outage on Comcast and only one time with Verizon, but Verizon fixed problem after 2 hours and Comcast always promising fast service but is taking 6-8 hours and sometimes a day to fix problem.

To be honest, Verizon providing much better service in our area.

Honestly, I've had positive experiences using FiOS for business. Up to this point, I've never had to deal with issues involving outages (I had a number of clients who opted to get it). I'm assuming that you want to use your own router/firewall, which is why I highly encourage.
