FiOS Quantum. As Fast As New York Fast

The following blog was written by John Bonomo on our external communications team. JB is a long-time resident on Long Island, and has exhibited “New York fast” many times in his career.


If you’ve ever heard the expression, “New York fast,” you know that means something that is faster than fast.  It’s part of that inimitable New York lifestyle that you can’t find anywhere else.


Verizon understands New Yorkers' need to be the fastest.  They have to have something “yesterday.”   They have the need for speed.


Verizon has captured the essence of this uniquely New York vibe with a new ad campaign for our FiOS Quantum Internet service  -- one of the fastest Internet services available delivered over Verizon’s 100 percent fiber-optic network.   Consumers in the five boroughs and the suburban areas can see and hear TV, radio commercials, direct mail, print and online ad that show how FiOS Quantum Internet is the perfect complement to New Yorkers’ fast-paced ways of life.  Here is the first of the TV spots.  Now that’s fast.   In fact, it’s FiOS fast!


But this is not your everyday, ordinary advertising campaign.  Verizon has put a twist on the concept, giving consumers in the area the chance to be a part of the fun.  Starting today, we’re asking New Yorkers to take some photos of whatever they like around the City and the area, and upload them to this microsite Each week, we’ll create a New York Minute video card.  Participants could win an iPad Mini.


FiOS Quantum is an Internet service that never slows down and keeps up with the pace of the city that never sleeps.  New Yorkers are going for the 50 Mbps FiOS Internet service faster than they can scoop up tamales from the newest food truck.

What a load of hooey!  I'm a new FiOs customer who is supposedly getting 75/35. i.e., much faster than Quantum.  I don't download or upload large files.  I surf the internet.  I find loading times for, say, Wikipedia pages no faster now than with the 15/5 Comcast service I recently quit.


It really doesn't matter how fast the service is if it's bottlenecked at an overworked server.  What do average computer users want?  Simple, response at the speed of thought.  Sort of like the response time between flicking a light switch and seeing light.  When you can deliver that, let me know and I'll get excited.
