Upstream rates are also 30 percent faster than Cablevision and Comcast and a whopping seven times faster than Time Warner. Of course all this speed comes at a premium Ė between $195 and $215 per month, depending the length of the contract and whether the subscriber buys Verizon's phone service as well. But while the majority of users probably won't be able to afford this new service, at least some previous customers will get a speed bump with no change in price: the 50/20 Mbps tier can now handle 60 Mbps down 35 Mbps up.
Back in August the company completed a real-world field test in which it pumped data at nearly 1Gbps speeds, while more recently Verizon hit another milestone, delivering 10 Gbps through a trial run of advanced XG-PON2 technology.
