Verizon Fios Speed Test FAQ

The Verizon Fios speed test tool above is powered by M-Labs. The data we collect from Fios users is aggregated with the rest of M-Lab’s data. Since this is the same speed engine used to power the speed test tool in Google search, we’re able to compare hundreds of thousands of real-world tests to draw the most accurate Fios speed reports possible.

How Do You Ensure the Fios Speed Test Results Aren’t Tampered With?

All the speed test results used to draw averages across the BroadbandNow website are IP-verified. Because IP addresses for consumer Internet are easily associated with particular providers, we’re able to be sure that each recorded Fios speed test comes from a real-world Fios user.

Fios Download Speeds vs Fios Upload Speeds

Fios has higher upload speeds than most Internet providers thanks to their fiber-optic network technology. While cable and DSL prioritize download speeds above all else, the increased bandwidth of Fios fiber allows them to deliver upload speeds in the same range as their download speeds.

Increased upload speeds with Fios ensure that real-time apps like Google Hangouts and Skype don’t feel laggy. It’s also great for gamers, word-from-home customers, and anyone else who wants to squeeze the most out of their Internet connection.

Fios Latency Test Results

Fios has low latency compared to most other wired Internet options in the US. Using a Fios connection, you’re likely to see an even better report, since the “average” we show above includes many speed tests from non-optimized Fios connections. As a rule of thumb, any latency result below 100ms will work well for the average household.

Fios Fiber-Optic Speeds: the Fiber Speed Advantage

Verizon Fios is a fiber provider. Fiber providers, unlike cable and DSL, deliver future-proof fiber wires all the way to the customer. Cable, by comparison, switches to cheap copper wire once it gets to your neighborhood. This critical network difference is why Fios has been so dramatically preferred in fiber/cable markets like New York City.
