Verizon has finally released prices for its
updated FiOS Internet tiers
, and gave its new service a name -- FiOS Quantum.
FiOS Quantum not only more than doubled the speeds of many of its tiers, but the broadband and telecommunications giant also added two new tiers to the list as well.
Verizon said its entry-level options would remain the same, such as the 15/5 Mbps, 25/25 Mbps, 35/35 Mbps, 50/20 Mbps and 150/35 Mbps tiers, but its updated
FiOS Internet tiers
will consist of 50/25 Mbps and 150/65 download/upload speeds. The two new tiers feature 75/35 Mbps or 300/65 Mbps speeds, where the 300/65 tier is double that of the current FiOS Internet top speed (which is 150/35 Mbps).
Now, Verizon has released pricing for its FiOS Quantum Internet services. Prices for the 15/5 Mbps monthly packages are as follows: $99.99 to $144.99 (depending on the package) for triple-play bundles of 15/5 Mbps FiOS Internet, FiOS TV, and FiOS Digital Voice unlimited; $84.99 to $129.99 (depending on the package) for double-play bundles of 15/5 Mbps FiOS Internet and FiOS TV; $64.99 for stand-alone 15/5 Mbps services with two-year contract and $69.99 on a month-to-month basis.
For monthly 50/25 Mbps speeds, a triple-play bundle will range from $109.99 to $149.99 while a double-play will cost $94.99 to $134.99, a stand-alone will cost $79.99 and a stand-alone with a two-year contract will run $74.99.
For monthly 75/35 Mbps speeds, a triple-play bundle will range from $114.99 to $154.99 while a double-play will cost $99.99 to $139.99, a stand-alone will cost $89.99 and a stand-alone with a two-year contract will run $84.99.
For monthly 150/65 Mbps speeds, a triple-play bundle will range from $169.99 to $174.99 while a double-play will cost $154.99 to $159.99, a stand-alone will cost $99.99 and a stand-alone with a two-year contract will run $94.99.
Finally, the fastest 300/65 option will have one price of $209.99, or $204.99 with a two-year contract.
Each tier is targeted at a specific audience. The layout is as follows: 15/5 Mbps for a one or two person household for just email and Web browsing; 50/25 Mbps for a multi-person household that downloads music,
and telecommutes; 75/35 Mbps for households that have three or more people on Internet-connected devices, stream HD movies, and play multi-player gaming, and 150/65 and 300/65 for households with five or more heavy Internet users.

RE: 300? Really?

At 300 Mbps you've moved squarely into the range where many people will see better performance for many activities by putting things into the cloud; which is of course the end goal for many, many companies. Besides, how often does Verizon roll out new equipment? 5 years? Who's to say what kind of online services you'll want to use in 5 years. 5 years ago, 10 Mbps sounded unnecessarily fast to most people (and now I swear at my 15 Mbps connection for not being fast enough).

Uhm, Netflix was streaming five years ago. Hell, I've had at least 10Mbs for a decade. My problem now is stingy TWC and their 1Mbs upload.
