It used to be that cable Internet service was considered the gold standard, the best that you could get. But these days Verizon FiOS is surpassing cable Internet service as the industry standard for the best service available. The cutting edge technology being used by Verizon is raising the bar for other companies in the industry.
Have you thought about switching to the new Verizon FiOS Internet service but haven’t really made up your mind yet? If you’re still on the fence about whether or not you want to switch from cable Internet service to Verizon FiOS High Speed Internet service, here are 5 reasons you should take the plunge and switch:
1. Verizon FiOS High Speed Internet service is faster
Most cable companies offer a maximum speed of 8 mega bytes per second, and you can expect to pay lot even for that speed. With the Verizon FiOS service you can get speeds of 5 mega bytes per second, 15 mega bytes per second or an impressive 30 mega bytes per second depending on what speed you need. And you will pay about the same prices as you’d pay for the 8 mega byte per second speed from the local cable company.
2. Verizon FiOS High Speed Internet Offers Online Flexibility
Do you want to be able to watch videos and TV shows online, download your favorite music, watch movies from online movie rental sites and take advantage of all the other multi-media applications on the Web? Try doing it with a cable Internet connection and you’ll get frustrated fast. Verizon FiOS High Speed Internet service has the power to handle multi-media on the web without slow loading time and interrupted streams.
3. Verizon FiOS High Speed Internet – More Value for Same Cost
In most places Verizon FiOS Internet plans cost about the same as local cable companies charge for their slower Internet connections. If you take advantage of some of the pricing deals and service bundles that Verizon offers (Verizon FiOS Triple Play), you can get an Internet service that is much faster than cable for less than the cost of cable. If you decide to get Verizon FiOS TV, digital phone service and Internet service bundled together you can save a lot of money with the Triple Play bundle.
4. Less Down Time with Verizon FiOS Internet
When there are a lot of users on an Internet connection that connection will slow down or you could get dropped off the Internet all together. That happens a lot to cable Internet users because cable companies use copper wires as the base structure of their network. These wires can’t support having a lot of users at once. The Verizon FiOS High Speed Internet service uses fiber optic cables that can accommodate a lot more users, so it’s very rare for anyone to get dropped or for the Internet connection to go down.
5. Verizon FiOS High Speed Internet is the Future
Soon all the satellite and cable companies will be forced to switch to a fiber optic network similar to the Verizon FiOS network in order to stay competitive, so why wait? Fiber optics is the future of Internet and TV technology and Verizon can give it to you for about the same cost as cable.
