It 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 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, watches videos 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.

Question for FIOS users who own a notebook
By Shadowmaster625 on 6/18/2012 4:34:34 PM , Rating: 2
If you have a really really fast internet, and netflix, can you test something for me? Start to play a 2 hour movie, wait for it to buffer for about 2 minutes, then disconnect from the internet. Put the computer into sleep mode, and/or hibernate. Then wake it up and see how much of the movie will play. I am wondering if a movie can be quickly loaded and then taken on the road with no hassle.

Netflix only buffers a short distance into the future.

That's how it works for me too, but I was hoping it would buffer more if you have more bandwidth. So basically, FIOS is useless. What is going to use that much bandwidth if streaming movies dont?
