Verizon Offers 20 Mbps Synchronous Service

Verizon introduced a residential FiOS Internet service featuring a symmetric upload and download speed of up to 20 Mbps and priced at $64.99 a month. The service is initially available in parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Verizon plans to offer similar symmetrical services soon in the 13 other states where the company offers FiOS Internet service, and to introduce a similar small-business offer.

The symmetrical FiOS service includes a comprehensive Internet security suite plus 1 GB of network-based backup at no additional charge. Customers who subscribe to the new Internet service can upgrade their backup to as much as 50 GB.
