FiOS Internet



Slow Internet connection

If your Verizon FiOS performance seems unusually slow, step through the following checklist to diagnose and correct the problem:

Figure depicting checkbox Optimize your FiOS speed. The Speed Optimizer tool can help you determine if settings (TCP/IP and MTU) on your computer are tuned for optimal performance.

Figure depicting checkbox Find and remove spyware. Spyware can run silently in the background whenever your computer is operating, draining memory and processing resources and significantly slowing your system's performance.
