FIOS Speed in Plano TX

Recommended Posts

I just fot FIOS as well, but am seeing speeds around the 5mbps range.  Have a linksys wireless broadband-g router and doing the test from my iMac (wireless). Have tested from my XP systems (both wired & wireless) with about the same results.  Now, 5m is really good compared to the dsl I came from. But the 12m you are reporting is completely awesome.

I am in Plano as well and got Fios installed today. I ordered 15/2 and here is what I get:

And this result is from DSLReports:

**************************************

dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-03-01 02:19:24 EST:

1328 / 1736

Your download speed : 1328 kbps or 166 KB/sec.

That is 51.6% worse than avg. other reports from verizon.net

Your upload speed is much faster than down.. have you tweaked?

Your upload speed : 1736 kbps or 217 KB/sec.

That is 162.2% better than avg. other reports from verizon.net

That does not look right to me. I guess I need to call Verizon tomorrow.

My speed was like half that after the install. I went to www.speedguide.net and used thier TCP/IP Optimizer and it brought my speed up to what it is now. I use windows 2000 pro, I also dont use IE, I use firefox with a tweak program.

The Verizon On-Line Help section has an automatic "Tweak" for FIOS users. It adjusts the MTU and Rcv Window settings  on your pc. It works without any manual input from the user. You can also revert back to your previous settings with the click of the mouse. (This is what the installers usually use)

http://netservices.verizon.net/portal/site/msa/index.jsp?case=speed_optimizer.

Also, I have found that some NIC's will not automatically switch to 10/100 when hooked up to a 15/2 or 30/2 package, which will cause your speeds to hoover in the 9-10mbps range. Simply deleting your NIC and rebooting to install it should do the trick.
