Latest FCC Broadband Performance Tests Show Verizon FiOS Internet Continues to Deliver Reliably Fast Online Connections for Consumers

The Federal Communications Commission on Friday (Feb. 15) issued the results of its "Measuring Broadband America February 2013" broadband speed and reliability testing for residential broadband service.This is the third broadband report issued by the FCC in conjunction with SamKnows, an independent company that tests broadband performance. The study, based on tests conducted last September, measured the speed and performance of 14 of the largest Internet service providers nationwide.

For the first time, the study also included Verizon's FiOS Quantum speed tiers of 50/25 megabits per second (Mbps) and 75/35 Mbps, introduced last summer.The following is a statement by John Wimsatt, senior vice president of product development for Verizon's consumer and mass market business unit, on the FCC's test results:

"As the FCC report showed, every FiOS Internet speed tier delivered more than 100 percent of its advertised and sustained download performance during peak Internet usage periods, differentiating FiOS Internet from most cable company competitors.

"The FCC's findings reaffirm the results from the past two FCC broadband performance tests, which found that FiOS Internet provides blazing-fast and sustained upstream and downstream speeds as well as low latency, even during the peak Internet usage time periods of 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. local time.

"FiOS Quantum speeds of 50 Mbps or higher will increasingly become what most of our customers use because it provides capacity a step above competing services, as households add and use more Internet-connected tablets, laptops, video game consoles, smart TVs, Blu-ray players, streaming video services and smartphones.

"While the number of Internet-connected devices grows, so too does the amount of time that consumers use those devices simultaneously, boosting their demand for not only fast downloads and uploads but also consistent and reliable performance at all times of the day. Consistently faster Internet service helps consumers get more value from all the Internet-connected devices they're using."
