Verizon FIOS Gets a Speed Boost

As if 30 Mbps down/5 Mbps up wasn’t enough, GigaOm reports that Verizon’s new home fiber optic broadband service, Verizon FIOS, is getting a top speed boost to 50 Mbps down/5 Mbps up in some areas. All that speed can be yours provided you live in the right neighborhood and you have $179/month to spend. At the low end, Verizon FIOS is still an acceptable 5 Mpbs down/2 Mbps up at pricing that is very competitive with cable. Cable companies typically offer a higher theoretical download speed, but considerably slower upload speed.

Is FIOS available in your area yet? Have you switched? Is it worth it?
