Editor’s Note: Himanshu Madhan, Thanks for the contribution.

Verizon as rumored is raising the home Internet download speed (FiOS Internet tiers) to 300Mbps. The new FiOS Internet portfolio will feature download/upload speed tiers of 50/25 and 150/65 megabits per second (Mbps), as well as two new tiers of 75/35 and 300/65 Mbps. In addition, Verizon will continue to offer its entry-level speed of 15/5 Mbps.  The other speeds in the company’s current industry-leading FiOS Internet portfolio are 25/25, 35/35 50/20 and 150/35 Mbps.

Bob Mudge, president of Verizon’s consumer and mass market business unit, characterized the broadband speed increases as a “societal and technological necessity,” as secure network applications enable consumers to enjoy a “borderless lifestyle” in which they can connect to the content they care about, anytime and anywhere.

The company says it will bring out the prices by next month but although we are not sure whether there will be an increase in rates for the new tiers or the company will offer a minimum price for the 15 / 5 bundles, which is currently $54.99 a month or more, depending on location.
