PROS Verizon Fios is a fiber-optic Internet, TV and Voice service offered by Verizon in select cities of 13 states including California, Connecticut, Washington D.C., Delaware, Florida, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, and Virginia. Fios Internet speed starts at 50 Mbps and you can have up to 500 Mbps. Unlike any other provider, Verizon Fios offers symmetrical speeds. That means download and upload speed are same. You can utilize higher upload speed to upload photos or large files in seconds. Wi-Fi hotspot access is free with any Fios Internet service plan.
CONS Verizon Fios is available in select cities only. Plan with minimum speed is 50 Mbps. But do you really need that much download speed? Netflix or any other streaming video service does not require 50 Mbps or more download speed. So you will be paying for higher speed although you may not able to utilize it.
BOTTOM LINE Verizon Fios is good choice if you have multiple devices using Internet at same time. Fios is great option if youâ€™re looking for higher upload speed in addition to download speed.
