Verizon ups its FiOS speeds to 50Mbps, sets the internet on fire

Filed under:

Not content with blazing up your local connection at 20Mbps downstream and up, Verizon has once again bumped its already-painfully-fast FiOS broadband service into the realm of ridiculous. According to reports, the company is now offering a 30Mbps / 15 Mbps service at $89.95 a month, and the nerve-shattering 50 Mbps / 20 Mbps speed at $139.95. The telecom has also introduced symmetrical connections in all 16 states where it currently offers FiOS service, with a 20Mbps / 20Mbps on the up and down, starting at $64.99. Of course, it’s all bleeps and buzzes in our particularly lonely corner of Brooklyn, where we’ll have to suffer the indignation of a lowly 10Mbps connection until the big V blesses us with some real speed… you hearing us, dudes?
