If you happen to live in an area where Verizon has its fast FiOS internet connectivity, Verizon has some good news about an upgrade you may like to hear. Verizon has announced that it is boosting the upload speeds of its FiOS service for almost all of the connections on the FiOS network to match the download speed.




That means users will get a synchronous connection that makes it much faster to upload content to the internet. This will be particularly nice for users who upload lots of large video files to sharing sites like YouTube.


The lowest cost FiOS plan will offer 25Mbps upload and download speeds, which is a boost from 15Mbps down and 5Mbps up. Current subscribers will see their speeds increase over the coming months. With the 25Mbps upload speed, customers would be able to upload a 3GB HD video in 16 minutes.
