Verizon FiOS goes symmetrical, upload speeds now blaze at same rate as downloads at same cost

Verizon FIOS

Today Verizon announced that their FiOS customers will receive upload speeds that match their current download speeds. This upgrade is for everyone, both existing customers and new140720_SpeedsUpDown285 subscribers.

Now you might be familiar with Verizon’s throttling of Netflix or its mediocrity when streaming Youtube (the number 1 and 2 reasons for getting high speed internet) and those things haven’t changed nor has their anti net-neutrality stance.

But frankly, you don’t have much of a choice out there. Comcast is worse and as the FCC deregulates, it doesn’t look good unless Google Fiber is coming to your town.

Before the upgrade, the tiers were 50/25, 75/35, 150/65, 300/65, and 500/100, but now in all cases, the second # (the upload speed) will increase to match the download speed.

9to5-image 2014-07-21 at 2.30.20 PM

Our favorite packages, the $50 for 50/50 Mb FiOS + HBO, local channels and some noteworthy HD channels including ESPN also got the upgrade making the deal even sweeter.
