Verizon Launches "Quantum" FiOS Speeds

Verizon has begun marketing its fastest-ever residential FiOS Internet service. The new FiOS Internet tiers containing the highest speeds are named FiOS Quantum and feature speeds of 50/25, 75/35, 150/65 and 300/65 megabits per second (Mbps). Three of those speeds �� 75/35, 150/65 and 300/65 -- are twice as fast as those previously offered. In addition, Verizon will continue to offer its entry-level speed of 15/5 Mbps.

Verizon noted that while the majority of existing FiOS customers will pay $10 to $15 more per month to double or triple their Internet speed, they may be able to adjust their FiOS TV tiers as desired and pay roughly the same monthly total that they pay now.
