NEW YORK – Verizon has begun deploying a new top-tier FiOS Quantum Internet service, featuring speeds of 500 Mbps download and 100 Mbps upload – the fastest broadband speed available in markets where Verizon offers its all-fiber-optic services.

With the new service, large files move with the ease and fluidity of an email:

  • A 2 megabyte architectural blueprint takes a fraction of a second (0.03 seconds, to be exact) to download and 0.16 seconds to upload.

  • A five-minute, 250 megabyte HD promotional video takes four seconds to download and 20 seconds to upload.

  • A two-hour, 5 gigabyte HD movie will be on your PC or tablet in 1.4 minutes or be sent in under seven minutes at the upload speed of 100 Mbps.

“Internet-power users have found a friend in FiOS Quantum Internet,” said Bob Mudge, president of Verizon’s consumer and mass business group. “Over the past year, one-third of FiOS Internet customers have upgraded to Quantum speeds of 50 Mbps or faster to do more of what they want, whenever they wish, on more devices throughout their home or office.

Full FiOS Quantum Deployment in 2014
The 500/100 Mbps speed is initially available in parts of every FiOS market, and Verizon will deploy the service throughout the entire FiOS footprint into 2014. For consumers, the 500/100 Mbps speed is available as part of a bundle or in stand-alone fashion, starting at $309.99 per month for a double play or $329.99 per month for a triple play with a two-year agreement. For small businesses, the new top speed is only offered on a stand-alone basis, starting at $369.99 per month with a two-year agreement. The service also is available to consumers and small businesses on a no-contract, month-to-month basis.

Speeds at Many Times the National Average
The average U.S. household currently owns seven Internet-connected devices, with high adoption rates among leading-edge and early technology adopters, according to Multimedia Research Group Inc. According to the FCC's third "Measuring Broadband America" report published in February, broadband speeds in American households now average 15.6 Mbps, with 61 percent of home Internet users in the 2 to 6 Mbps range.

Verizon FiOS customers can choose to enjoy the Internet at speeds many times higher than the national average. Customers have the option of six speed tiers from which to choose, starting at 15/5 Mbps, to 300/65 and up to 500/100 Mbps.

New residential customers can choose triple-play bundles with Internet starting at 15/5 Mbps FiOS Internet, FiOS TV and FiOS Digital Voice unlimited calling. A variety of additional bundle options – featuring Internet speeds, channel lineups, Spanish-language programming through La Conexion and more – are geared toward meeting any particular customer’s needs and interests.
