In contrast to those users who claim they aren't being given the speeds they were advertised, FiOS customers in our forums indicate they're actually getting more than they paid for. Several users have dropped us a line to note that those on 25/15 Mbps and symmetrical 35 Mbps tiers are seeing significantly extra downstream speed. Users in our forums on the 25 Mbps tier are seeing downstream speeds of 30 Mbps or greater, while customers on the 35 Mbps tier are sometimes seeing speeds up to 43 Mbps. It's not clear if this is Verizon simply giving a little extra love to users, or they're engaged in some kind of testing for future tier changes. We've dropped a line to Verizon to inquire.
Update: Verizon tells us this is simply Verizon delivering faster service than advertised and "nothing out of the ordinary."
