1443i0828718FC63BE389We spend a lot of time talking about FiOS here at the Verizon at Home blog, but today we have some great news for millions of Verizon High Speed Internet (HSI) customers served by our reliable copper network.


We’ve more than doubled our existing maximum HSI download speeds to 10 to 15 Mbps/1 Mbps  for communities that run the gamut from Barstow in California’s Mojave Desert to Lynchburg, Virginia.  We know that speed matters wherever you are, and the fact is that our copper network has proven itself highly reliable and valuable over the years in providing a great Internet connection and service for customers with a thirst for bandwidth.
