Verizon Reaches Nearly 1Gb/Sec Speed

Quote:
Computerworld - Verizon today said a fiber-optic field trial it conducted in June for a business customer in Taunton, Mass., delivered near-Gigabit-per-second speeds.

The customer received 925 Mbit/sec. throughput to a server at its business location from a Verizon central office less than two miles away, Verizon officials said. Speeds of 800 Mbit/sec. were recorded to regional speed test servers 400 miles away.

We were one of the first cities for Fios internet when it rolled out, been with them for a while. No problems. We've got 35/35, but I can't imagine what the monthly bill for 1 Gbps would be, other than insane.

For insanity in Internet pricing, visit Canada. I just got an offer from my ISP to "upgrade" to 100 MBps for $160/month. I already pay $70/month for 15 MBps, and real speed is about 5.

I'd kill for FiOS.

Actually, Mellon, that's comparable to where we are. Might even be a tad bit less, since our currencies aren't far apart. FiOS is $90 for 35/35, $140 for 50/50. You can get a better deal if you bundle TV, phone and internet, which is what we do. But you are right - it ain't cheap. Once they set up 1 Gbps, I bet they'll attach a fiber optic vacuum cleaner into your bank.

but you have to also look at our retarded useage caps too. (15 gb is no more then 80gb on any network) 1.25$ per extra gig, with a max of $30-$60

And the CRTC just lets them walk all over us by basically saying to them "How can we help you gouge your customers even more?"

EDIT: Btw, Colonel Travis, what you get with FiOS is real speeds. You pay for 35/35, and I'll bet you get 35 MBps. I pay for 15, and get 5, and I'm told that 15 is "the max, under ideal conditions." And my $70/month is in a bundle.

You think you have it bad? I pay $70/month (actually my company pays it) for less than 1Mbs. My speed is more typically 600-700Kbs. If I use over 20G in a month they send me emails admonishing me to keep my data usage below 20G.

I'd kill to have a decent connection with a speed greater than 1Mbs!!
