Verizon adds new 150Mbit/sec tier to FiOS lineup
Verizon has announced this week that it will be adding a new, speedier tier to its FiOS fiber broadband offering, offering as high as 150Mbit/sec downstream and 34Mbit upstream.
The service will cost users $195 per month.
So far, Verizon is rolling out the service to 12 U.S. states, and D.C., with small businesses and residential consumers expected to be able to use it fully by the end of the year.
Verizon currently offers a 50/20Mbit plan for $140 per month, their fastest offering.
New customers or upgrading customers must sign up for a one-year agreement to get the $195 price for the new incredibly fast option.
FiOS is currently available to 12.5 million households in the U.S. with Verizon expecting to expand reach to 18 million.
With a 150Mbit connection, users can download full two-hour 1080p HD movies in under 4 minutes and average music tracks in 300 milliseconds.
