50 is Fun – Now How About 75?

Having already passed the 50 milestone in my life, you’ll have a hard time convincing me that 75 is going to be even better, but I’m willing to give it a try.

Age is one thing, but Internet speed is something altogether different.  During the past year, we’ve seen hundreds of thousands of FiOS customers take advantage of the opportunity to increase their broadband speed to FiOS Quantum 50/25 Megabits per second (Mbps) speed for less than the cost of four cups of coffee each month.

Trend: Your TV is The Newest Way to Shop Internet Speeds

In most cases, the speed increase was initiated by a customer visiting FiOS TV channel 500 and using their FiOS TV remote control and FiOS TV interactive media guide to process the order.

These speed loving customers enjoy both the new speed, and what it does for their household home and/or small business Internet experience, plus the ease with which they were able to upgrade.

50 Mbps and Above…The New Norm!

Just over 40 percent of our FiOS Internet customers now subscribe to FiOS Quantum speeds that range between 50/25 and 500/100 Mbps.  Take the past three months as an example, when more than half of our FiOS Internet sales involved  speeds in excess of 50 Mbps.

What’s driving the need for faster speed?  For most, it’s increased video streaming, gaming, and uploading video and music.

If you’re currently using FiOS Quantum 50/25 Mbps service, you can upgrade to 75/35 Mbps for just $10 more per month.  Those using lesser speeds can upgrade to 75/35 Mbps for just $20 more per month.

FiOS Quantum makes quite a difference in both the speed and reliability of completing a wide range of bandwidth-intensive tasks such as streaming videos, conducting video chats, downloading huge amounts of videos, music and photos, playing online games with others and using multiple Internet devices simultaneously.

Moving to 75/35 Mbps will mean more speed for you and your household as the number of Internet connected devices you use will likely increase.

We’re not saying 75 is the “new 50.”  However, if you possess a “more is better” personality, you’ll likely want to take advantage of this opportunity to increase your online speed.  Speaking of, what’s your speed?  Test it here.
