NEW YORK – The Federal Communications Commission’s just-released report on residential wireline broadband service, “Measuring Broadband America,” confirms that Verizon FiOS Internet customers receive blazing-fast and sustained upstream and downstream speeds even during peak usage periods.

The FCC’s broadband performance tests, conducted earlier this year by SamKnows, an independent company that tests broadband speeds, measured the speed and performance of major wireline Internet service providers nationwide. The results of the nationwide tests, issued Tuesday (Aug. 2), show that Verizon’s all-fiber-optic-based FiOS Internet service performs exceedingly well at all hours including during the most active hours of broadband use: between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. on weekdays. The test results also show that Verizon FiOS Internet customers are receiving speeds that meet or exceed those advertised by the company.

“The Verizon FiOS Internet experience remains second to none because our 100 percent fiber-optic technology is a network ahead,” said Eric Bruno, Verizon vice president of product management. “FiOS Internet customers get an excellent experience for today’s digital lifestyle, which includes streaming favorite TV shows and movies, uploading photos to the Web, running multiple online devices in the home, downloading large amounts of data, video chatting and online gaming.
