Business FiOS


You have the option of choosing a fiber-optic internet connection for either home or business.

Residential FiOS gives symmetrical speeds, meaning your download and upload speeds are the same. Traditional cable internet has faster download speeds than upload speeds—which is fine for streaming but leads to lag with console or PC gaming.

FiOS for business is important for organizations that depend on broadband services for productivity.

What Internet Speed Should I Select?

Shopping for broadband services involves more than comparing internet service providers. You also need to figure out how much internet speed your home or business uses. Determining this before you buy means you can choose an internet connection that gets the job done—without paying for speeds you won’t use.

You get equal upload and download speeds with FiOS, while traditional high-speed internet connections typically have slower upload speeds. Not sure what the difference is? Download speeds are used for streaming. Upload speeds are used for sending files. Some activities, like video conferencing or online gaming, use both.

Estimate your bandwidth needs by considering the number of simultaneous users, activities, the bandwidth needed per activity, and the total bandwidth needed to do all those activities at the same time. Check out this resource for more information and a handy worksheet.
