Verizon Offering $70 FiOS Gigabit Service for New Customers

The Northeast U.S. can get ready to rev up their favorite streaming sites, as Verizon is now offering Gigabit Connection via their FiOS internet service. New and existing customers in areas of Boston, Providence, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Hampton Roads, VA., and Richmond, VA can purchase the gigabit-tiered speed for a monthly $69.99 price. While not at true gigabit bandwidth, Verizon is claiming the service will attain 940 Mbps download, and 880 Mbps upload speeds.

آ… Verizon’s network performance exceeded expectations as Instant Internet customers regularly saw actual speeds well over the advertised 750 Mbps/750 Mbps. Verizon has since fine-tuned the service with new firmware and diagnostic tools to increase performance even more.

Existing Instant Internet customers in the service region will have their monthly rates decreased, while speeds are increased to the Gigabit Connection tier, though these new rates have not been explicitly stated. While not being eligible for this newer monthly price, existing customers can revel in the fact of paying less for faster service. Meanwhile, those of us pining for better service will continue to wait for better offerings.
