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.

Your best bet for TV is switching between satellite providers every time your contract ends. Never go with Comcast cable TV. It's more expensive and far, far less reliable.

(Yeah, I know satellite gets interrupted by rain and snow, but I've had far more problems with cable in my new place since I'm unable to get satellite. Comcast's DVRs are horribly unreliable. the service goes out constantly. I'm essentially paying $60/month for one TV and DVR, which is more than you'd pay with either satellite provider. I've had both and I badly miss the option. I got a south facing apartment because I wanted satellite, but there's a stupid tree in the way.)

While Comcast is better for internet, given our choices, they are far worse for TV. Their customer service level is horrible.

I scheduled moving my service a month before my last move, and their installer just didn't show. He claimed he got the wrong address, but never tried to call me. I rescheduled, that other guy didn't show. The third time I scheduled, the person on the phone wanted to charge me $150 because it was my third install in under a year, despite the fact the other guys didn't show. I ended up having to cancel all my service and schedule a new install, three weeks after I had moved in.
