PHILADELPHIA, PA, March 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Pennswood Apartments comments on the performance of Verizon FIOS in light of a new series of tests by the FCC, which further illustrate the strength of the network. A new article released by The Wall Street Journal states that the Federal Communications Commission recently issued the results of its "Measuring Broadband America February 2013" speed and reliability testing. This report is the third of its kind. The study, based on tests that were performed last September, measured the speed and performance of 14 of the largest Internet service providers nationwide.
For the first time, the study also counted Verizon's FIOS Quantum speed tiers of 50/25 megabits per second and 75/35 Mbps, which were introduced last summer. John Wimsatt, senior vice president of product development for Verizon's consumer and mass market business unit, had the following comments on the test results, "As the FCC report showed, every FiOS Internet speed tier delivered more than 100 percent of its advertised and sustained download performance during peak Internet usage periods, differentiating FIOS Internet from most cable company competitors."
Wimsatt went on to note, "The FCC's findings reaffirm the results from the past two FCC broadband performance tests, which found that FIOS Internet provides blazing-fast and sustained upstream and downstream speeds as well as low latency, even during the peak Internet usage time periods of 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. local time."
The staff at Pennswood Apartments notes that high performance during peak Internet usage time is especially important, as Internet service that lags can cause frustration and limited productivity for users.
Wimsatt also states, "FIOS Quantum speeds of 50 Mbps or higher will increasingly become what most of our customers use because it provides capacity a step above competing services, as households add and use more Internet-connected tablets, laptops, video game consoles, smart TVs, Blu-ray players, streaming video services and smart phones.
