Interesting story, figured I'd pass it along.

 

 

FiOS Users Getting More Than They Pay For
Users on 25 Mbps and 35 Mbps tiers seeing 5-8 Mbps speed cushion

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."

Yes this was pointed out in various threads. Good to give it a dedicated posting. Yes I too am enjoying 43/35. That shows as a 45mbps T3 as the slowest link. Kudos to Verizon!
