[qi:114] Verizon is rolling out major speed boosts for its FiOS broadband subscribers across its entire service area. These new tiers offer up to 50 Mbps/20 Mbps or up to 30 Mbps/15 Mbps, depending on the state in which the service is sold, at costs ranging from $89.95 to $139.95 a month. (I seriously want the 50Mbps connection, but sadly the service isn’t available in San Francisco.)
It has also rolled out symmetrical connections in the entire 16-state region it currently serves. The symmetrical connections have up and down speeds of up to 20 megabits per second. The symmetrical services were first launched on Oct. 23 in the New York Tri-State Region. Today, Verizon (VZ) launched the service in the remaining 13 states.
In Florida, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, offers the option of a FiOS Internet service with downstream and upstream connections of up to 20 Mbps. In California, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Texas, Virginia and Washington, the company has added a new FiOS Internet service with downstream and upstream connections of up to 15 Mbps.
These services start at $64.99 a month. More details are here.
