Speed is everything and how fast is how much you want to spend. Verizon seems to be adopting this philosophy and has announced that it will be adding more horsepower to it’s fiber optic internet plans and pricing it to suit those speeds. Doubling the speed of it’s current plan, 150Mbps up and 35Mbps down, the new top tier plan will have speeds of 300Mbps up and 65Mbps down. The new speeds will have pricing released next month but the current price for their top tier pan is $200 bucks.
The new FiOS Internet portfolio will feature download/upload speed tiers of 50/25 and 150/65 megabits per second (Mbps), as well as two new tiers of 75/35 and 300/65 Mbps. The latter speed is double that of FiOS Internet’s current top speed of 150/35 Mbps, the nation’s fastest, mass scale residential Internet speed.
In addition, Verizon will continue to offer its entry-level speed of 15/5 Mbps. The other speeds in the company’s current industry-leading FiOS Internet portfolio are 25/25, 35/35 50/20 and 150/35 Mbps. (A FiOS Internet speed grid with more details about the current and future FiOS speeds is available at www.verizon.com/newscenter.) Pricing for the new portfolio will be announced next month.
Can hardly wait to see what the new top tier pricing will shake out at and but rest assured it will be a chunk. We’ll keep you posted on pricing.
