I'm a FIOS customer (LATA 246 not 236 like Chris), and haven't had any
issues with the network.  On the other hand, between my location and
the fact that I'm on an old BPON build, perhaps the software upgrades
haven't affected me.  To further complicate things, ever suspicious of
ISP nameservers that don't do DNSSEC validation and monetize rcode 3,
and not a fan of the Actiontec boxes that Verizon hands out I run my
own cacheing nameserver (hand-built openbsd+pf on embedded hardware
with latest bind or unbound and isc dhcpd).

Do things magically start working for you if you hard-code 8.8.8.8 or
4.2.2.1 or one of the other usual suspects?  That would seem to be a
quick way of narrowing it down a bit.
