Verizon FiOS to increase upload and download speeds

Verizon is boosting its FiOS fiber optic Internet service upload and download speeds today, according to this Ars Technica article. My plan, which is already 5Mbps up, 20Mbps down, will supposedly go to 15/25 … which is pretty damn awesome.

I immediately went to to see if my line was upgraded, and so far it’s at the same speed it was yesterday:

I’ll check it again when I get home from work.

I’ve been a FiOS data customer for over three years, and have been very pleased. I recently got the FiOS TV and VOIP service, and while I pretty impressed with the TV picture quality the router they make me use sucks and my latency has been sporadic. I wish I could go back to using my hacked Linksys router.
