Verizon FiOS Data Speeds

You know that 15Mbps, 30Mbps or 50Mbps Internet service you pay your cable TV provider way too much for each month? That lightning fast figure likely only refers to your peak download speeds, and your upload speeds are probably much slower. For example, the 30Mbps Internet service I pay Time Warner Cable more than $60 for each month only provides upload speeds of up to 5Mbps. This is likely fine for some users, but many people need faster upload speeds to avoid getting bogged down. Now, thanks to a huge free upgrade Verizon is currently rolling out, FiOS customers are about to get a pleasant surprise.

Verizon announced on Monday that it is giving FiOS customers a free upload speed boost. The company says that upload speeds will be increased by as much as five times so that the upload speeds on each Internet package match the download speeds.

The following chart highlights the changes.

Verizon says that the upgrades will begin rolling out immediately to all customers.
