Fios Speeds Increased

Recommended Posts

I wish they had it here.  Only Bright House Networks (road runner) has this area.  And the bellsouth dsl.  It's weird how much of a difference the 20Mbps down to 30Mbps is money wise.

there is a big difference for only 10mbps download.

they got some new nice plans, i love the 5Mbps upload for only 44.95 a month. currently its only in newyork but should be making its way around soon.

I got the 20/5 package. Its a great price, i was paying 49 for Optonline. Now I pay 44 for a 5 up pipe.

Here are my results.

Strikeman welcome to the forum.

can i like just move into your house, cuz i want that.

Thanks :) I got FIOS as soon as it was available in my area. The guy who installed it was pretty cool, he let me hang around and ask him questions when he installed it. He said supposedly there will be 50meg down sometime in the future. Its interesting because on the ONT there is a 100Meg Link light. So I guess in theory you could get 100 down if they supported it.

Having a fat pipe is nice, its not like I get 20 megs down from every server. I really dont notice faster speeds all the time, its just only on servers that can handle it. What I have noticed is increased bandwidth, which means I can have more simultaneous downloads going without degradation.

Wow i feel like a real loser now that my download is slower than your upload and the price per month is the same!

Hey its not your fault, the TeleComms been raping the consumer. Everyone should have had faster speeds by now but all the big companies used the government money for other stuff. It sucks.
