With the new faster "Fios" fiber optics is there any value in paying for a T1?

FIOS definitley faster, T1 will give you safety piece of mind. If retail FIOS down, you wait until fixed. T1, there are uptime requirements.

Is FiOS different from the fiber optics cable that is already existing now-a-days? It was there with copper cables but was expensive. Please clarify.

Whatever you get - FiOS, DSL, cable, or T1 - you may want to get the Business version rather than the Consumer version. Business versions come with Service Level Agreements that guarantee better than 99% uptime.Consumer DSL, for instance, can go down for half an hour in the middle of the day.

FIOS is so much cheaper than a T1 to internet. There's no reason not to get FIOS.
