Hey Howard, Two thing I would like to mention. My experience is fios is way faster than cable. I have the 15/15 and soon to be 20/20. What has helped me with the upload speed is to run tcp optimizer from www.speedguide.net. Upgrade your speed and you will be jazzed beyond!!
If you signed up for the basic slowest speed, you do need to upgrade to he satisfied.
All the best,
I have phone, internet and TV all through Verizon. I have had no issues with speed. I sometimes had 3 laptops on a wireless network and even then there wasnt a noticeable impact on speed.
I don't think the verizon speed test shows true results. I use My Speed and it shows me the true speed. It is consistantly these results......Download speed 15573 Kbps (socket test) Upload speed 15284 Kbps (socket test) Quality of service 99 % Maximum delay 10 ms Round trip time 19 ms
You can check your speed at this site. Choose the server nearest to you. Mine was LA.
Don't forget to try the conection optimizer at:http://www.speedguide.net/tcpoptimizer.php
This works for me!
