Business FiOS


You can get internet packages for home or business from most internet service providers (ISPs). The best plan for you depends on what you use your internet for.

Residential FiOS works for most families and even some very small businesses. Symmetrical speeds (equal upload and download speeds) mean online gaming and Skype calls are generally faster and clearer.

Business broadband service is designed for organizations that depend on a reliable connection. As a business customer, you’ll usually get priority when it comes to tech support. You’ll also have more add-ons to choose from like static IPs for secure data transfers. There are even specialized modems and wireless routers for business internet to help you make the most of your plan.

How Do I Choose My Internet Connection Speed?

Choosing the right broadband speed will ensure you have enough bandwidth for normal activities. You will also save money by not paying for extra bandwidth you don’t need.

Are you thinking about getting faster internet? First, determine how fast your current internet is by running speed tests at different times of the day and week.

You’ll likely see your results as a number followed by a Mbps abbreviation. Mbps, or megabits per second, is the unit of bandwidth used to gauge the speed for most internet connections.

Once you know how much speed you’re getting, estimate your bandwidth needs by asking yourself a few questions:

  1. How many people will be using your connection at the same time?
  2. What activities will people be doing?
  3. How much bandwidth does each activity require?
  4. What is the total bandwidth of those activities?

Compare your speed test results with your estimated bandwidth to see how much faster your internet should be to accommodate activities or work tasks.

Is 30 Mbps Fast?

A 30 Mbps internet plan has plenty of speed for families and small businesses. With 30 Mbps internet service, you’ll be able to download your favorite song or a file for work within a few seconds. Symmetrical speeds—like you get with fiber-optic internet—make uploading just as fast.

Is FiOS Better than Traditional High-Speed Internet?

Fiber-optic internet uses strands of glass, while traditional high-speed internet service uses copper cables.

FiOS transmits data through light pulses, an efficient form of sending information. Copper cables heat up as data runs through the wiring, making your connection the slowest once it reaches your home or business.

You won’t get access to symmetrical speeds with a traditional high-speed internet connection, either. Your upload speed will typically be slower than your download speed.

This will make your internet slow down during activities that require higher upload speeds like online gaming, cloud backup, and transferring files.

In addition to symmetrical speeds, FiOS usually offers faster broadband speeds in general. Businesses that depend on a fast, reliable connection appreciate the extra speed FiOS provides.

FiOS might be worth it if you have several users in your home gaming or streaming ultra-high definition video.

Simply put, FiOS is a great option for homes or businesses that need more bandwidth than traditional high-speed internet access provides.
