Verizon FiOS Offers Easy $10 Upgrade to 50/25Mbps Service: Click Your Remote Twice

Phillip Dampier February 21, 2013 Broadband Speed, Competition, Verizon 5 Comments

fios quantum 285x190Verizon FiOS has made it easy for broadband customers to upgrade to 50/25Mbps service for $10 more a month.

Getting access to the company’s introductory Quantum tier is as simple as going to FiOS TV Channel 500 and clicking the OK button twice with your remote control. Within one hour, your speeds will be upgraded. For those who don’t subscribe to FiOS TV, you can visit the FiOS Quantum website or use the MyFiOS smartphone app.

A promotion for new customers includes an introductory offer of FiOS TV, Quantum 50/25Mbps, and telephone service for $89.99 a month with a $250 debit card rebate in certain markets.

Last summer, the company launched the Quantum brand to market its highest speed tiers: 50/25Mbps, 75/35Mbps, 150/65Mbps or 300/65Mbps.

Verizon says the company noticed an increasing demand for faster speed service because customers are connecting more devices to the Internet. Streaming multiple online videos at the same time, for example, can burden slower speed Internet services.

Verizon says the faster speeds also keep the company ahead of its cable competition, which has struggled to provide affordable faster tiers of service and remains limited on upstream speeds.

Verizon sold all their crappy copper phone lines and business to Frontier awhile back for 8.6 billion, why the heck would they go and buy out Frontier after that?

Maybe Google Fiber ought to buy out Frontier and replace all of the cooper lines with fiber optic cable lines in a heartbeat.

Good luck with that. You can’t replace infrastructure of any kind “in a heartbeat”, much less rather rural copper telephone systems with fiber.

Don’t get me wrong. Going from $40 3/768 DSL to either “free” 5/1 or $70 gigabit would be amazing. But even Google doesn’t have the resources to do that in a footprint the size of Frontier’s.
