NEW YORK -- 'Tis the season for new laptop computers, gaming consoles, online video conferencing and streaming video of a partridge in a pear tree.

Verizon's FiOS Internet makes these and other holiday gifts of electronic gadgets more rewarding by providing the upstream speeds consumers want for uploading photos and video to social media sites or online sharing services, video conferencing with grandparents in other states, or taking on all comers in a multi-player online gaming marathon during the school break.

Verizon offers its fastest upstream speed of 35 Mbps (megabits per second) as part of a bundle of 35/35 Mbps symmetrical Internet, FiOS Ultimate HD TV plan and FiOS Digital Voice, as well as a stand-alone service of 150/35 Mbps Ultimate FiOS Internet. With upstream speeds up to 35 Mbps, FiOS easily outpaces cable's mostly single-digit upstream speed offerings, and ensures consumers won't get frustrated by slowdowns during peak usage times or usage caps often associated with some cable services.

"As 2010 draws to a close, FiOS continues to set the pace on Internet speeds," said Eric Bruno, Verizon vice president of product development. "With last month's launch of a 150 Mbps downstream and 35 Mbps upstream Internet service, Verizon FiOS now offers unmatched speeds to the mass consumer market. Meanwhile, our network engineers continue to raise the bar on future Internet speeds, with successful field trials of mega-gigabit-per-second connections over the FiOS network.
