Verizon offers 150/35 Mbps FiOS speed tier Verizon offers 150/35 Mbps FiOS speed tierVerizon offers 150/35 Mbps FiOS speed tier


23 November 2010

Verizon's new 150/35 Mbps speed FiOS Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) speed tier is yet another way the service provider is set on one-upping cable's DOCSIS 3.0 efforts.

Initially targeting the 12.5 million residences that the FiOS network passes, Verizon will widen the service to SMB customers by the end of the year.

Under the current pricing scheme, Verizon will offer four options. Customers can purchase the new speed tier with wireline voice service for $194.99 with a one-year contract, while FiOS Internet with phone service on a month-to-month basis is $209.99. When purchased on a one-year contract without wireline voice, customers will pay $199.99, while FiOS Internet without voice on a month-to-month basis will cost $214.99 per month.

The new 150 Mbps service comes with the typical installation fee of $49.99, while customers that want a month-to-month contract will have to pay a $79.99 installation fee.

Other than saying it would be initially available to a large piece of its subscriber base, John Schommer, director of broadband product development for Verizon, would not specify how many subscribers would be eligible for the service. "Inside of the CO itself, you'll deploy an Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and as long as there's a GPON terminal available there, everyone in the wiring center can receive the new speed," he said. "We don't want to give out the number, but it's a vast majority of our customers can receive the service on day one."

The installation of the new service, even for BPON-based customers, will be relatively quick for existing customers because the fiber drops are already there. If a customer is still on the BPON network, Verizon will just swap out the Optical Network Terminal (ONT) on the side of the house with a new GPON-based ONT.

One of the biggest changes with the new speed tier is that it will leverage an Ethernet instead of Multimedia over Coax (MoCA) to connect to the home network's Actiontec Broadband Home Router (BHR).
