Verizon the largest wireless communication service provider in US has now launched new Fios fiber optic communication service with the help of Fios Gigabit Connection. This will definitely attract new customers to its platform as the current internet bandwidth speed upsets many users.
Along with Verizon, many other providers have been working hard to find out the ways in which the internet speed can reach to gigabit. To stand out of the crowd Verizon, have launched new Gigabit Connection speed that will be initially available for 8 million homes of United States.
Ken Dixon, President of Verizon’s consumer wireline business said: “No other internet service provider has reached the power of Fios Gigabit connection and offered the service at just $69.99 per month.
Verizon stated that the actual internet speed will be slightly less than a gigabit per second. The company said the actual download speed will be 940 Mbps and the upload speed will be 880 Mbps. The Fios Gigabit Connection will be available in regions like New York, New Jersey, Richmond, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington etc.
Ideally, the Fios Gigabit Connection will be available at $69.99 per month and when combined with both TV and digital voice service the service will be priced at $79.99 per month. From the second year, onwards the price of the bundled service will be increased to $84.99.
The Verizon Fios Instant Internet service launched back in January have now increased the internet bandwidth speed from 500 Mbps to 750 Mbps.
The competitor of Verizon called Google Fiber is also upgrading their bandwidths continuously. Google Fiber is also including the DOCSIS 3.1 technology for improving its internet speeds. Google Fiber was launched in 2010 and was the first company to reach the gigabit speed but unfortunately, the company was not able to reach the market.
But, the Fios Gigabit Connection is not available in all the Fios regions hence some users have to manage with the slow internet bandwidth. Also, the users have to pay $180 per month to avail 500 Mbps service.
The existing speed of Fios Gigabit Connection is so high that it can connect about 100 devices at a time.
