Verizon FiOS VS Cable

For unsurpassed performance and reliability, a 100% fiber-optic network makes all the difference. Check Availability

Verizon FiOS or Cable? The choice is clear. More people choose FiOS than cable.

Don’t settle for less than 100% of the Internet. Only FiOS customers get upload speeds as fast as their download speeds.

The fastest Wi-Fi available from any provider.2

The major difference is a 100% fiber-optic network for your home. Cable companies don't offer that. Join the fiber-optic network for reliable speed you can count on.

How does your Internet provider perform under pressure? Verizon FiOS carries fast speeds. That’s important when you’re downloading and sharing online.

Upload a 4-minute, 30MB video in less than 5 seconds, with 50/50Mbps FiOS speed. Have Comcast’s 25/5 Mbps speed? You’ll wait 48 seconds to see your video.3 That’s almost 10 times slower than FiOS.

In certain areas, FiOS Internet download and upload speeds can reach 500Mbps.4 When you compare FiOS speeds to cable, it's a no-brainer.
