Verizon FIOS

Okay, I will admit I absolutely love Verizon FIOS. I quit them, oh maybe a year ago and switched to Comcast. Why? My Verizon Triple Play prices got out of control and I was up to nearly $200 a month! CRAZY!

So, as I said, I switched to Comcast. It was a disaster. Their internet speeds simply cannot compare to FIOS. So there I have said it. I love Verizon FIOS.

I received a note from Verizon a few days ago and included in the note was this sentence: "We love having you in the FiOS community and as a member of My Rewards+. To show our appreciation, we upgraded your Internet upload speed to match your download speed—for free. This upgrade is just one more great benefit of being a member of My Rewards+."

I have to say that was nice to read, but I was paying for, and getting, 50 MBPS download and 30 MBPS upload. I didn't really feel I needed the extra upload speed, but it was free and automatic, so I got it. I just ran a speedtest.net and look what I got (below). AMAZING results. THANK YOU Verizon!

Oh, by the way, when I came back to Verizon recently. leaving Comcast behind, I carefully crafted my package to favor internet and downplayed the TV and also eliminated the landline (more on that later in a separate post).
