Full Comcast Xfinity vs Verizon FiOS Review http://www.highspeedexperts.com/comcast-xfinity-vs-verizon-fios/
I just switched from a Comcast's fastest plan to Verizon FiOS's "medium" plan and did a speed test.
Now that I've had the service almost 2 weeks, I would go with Verizon FiOS every day.
I used to have Comcast i had the pro tier plan some days I get hover connections and I noticed when I’m in my room and the router is in my living room and my room is next to it I get a crappy signal but when I’m next to the router I get stronger signals before I got super crappy signals from the bathroom with Comcast I upgraded my router from a better one and I had faster connection in the bathroom my connection on the living room was fast sometimes I get 80 down or 90 but the most I got was in the 70 but mostly is 70 to 80 to 90 for downs and my ups where the same anywhere It stayed at 5 for down but with Fios and I heard that the down is faster and the up is the same as the down I can see fios is better but it’s 2018 and they got some great cheap plans right now
Yeah I just switched to Verizon today I should get my WiFi on Thursday but when I used to have Comcast my internet speed was fairly good I never lagged out of games a lot my friend has Comcast but he lags out a lot on video games Comcast got rid of our internet because we haven’t paid the bill but we decided to switch because with tv internet and phone it costed us a lot I saw many commercials about Verizon being good I saw other videos of Verizon being good and I decided Verizon is a good provider for me the mbps numbers match with the upload speed with is fantastic so now I have Verizon I will feel confident over then next few months and years I will have fast internet your video and others made me feel confident about having Verizon we heard Verizon is in the average for tv but we still have Comcast for tv because it’s more easy to use but I have Verizon as internet and phone but one problem is I live in a Comcast area where xfinity WiFi is everywhere on the streets I live a few min out from Boston I hope that doesn’t effect my internet
Getting rid of xfinity. Had it for years and I've NEVER EVER EVER had consistent internet speeds. Every time I've ever called about it, it's the same run around. Sending signals to the router, resetting the router to factory. One day I'll get 100mbps next day I'm lucky if I get 3mbps. But it never stops them from billing you for speeds you NEVER actually get to use.
Xfinity just issued a 1TB limit cap on all it's 100Mb and up plans. If you use over 1TB you will be charged an additional 200$ per month unless you agree to add an added 50$ data fee to each bill. This send me into around 140-150$ per month for 150Mbps connection. I'm looking at the Verizon FIOS 100 or 150. I do networking and pc tech as a living. I'm about to build a linux email server to get off of corporate emails. I own a 200$ modem and a 200$ wifi router couple with about 4 switches. The drawbacks of Verizon is 1. a dude fiddling with my setup, I'm going to try to inform them that they won't be touching my pc's I know how to run cat5 to my own modem and 2 the fact that customers say "This only works with their routers". I should add I use a little over 2TB in data a month.
Any customer gripes with Verizon?
zbib43 bro the same happens to my friend me and him both have Comcast I now have fios but I didn’t know what internet plan he had but his internet sucked he lagged out of every game almost and I said why but he upgraded his internet it got better but he still lagged quit a bit but I had Comcast and I never lagged I only lagged once every 5 6 or 9 months or never I noticed that his WiFi router was under a computer desk hidden away and his room is upstairs and I know walls can weaken signals but my WiFi router was next to my PS4 with an ethernet cable but felt and saw that I was getting slower speeds even with an ethernet cable I hope fios fixes everything
PeliaS Fios, even though the plan offers 50mbps less the fiber optic system that fios runs ofd gives it unbelievable relaible internet.. I had xfinity (comcast) 150mbps plan hooked up to my xbox n ps4 ona lan cable and it never felt like I was getting that and I stayed having internet problems. Switched over to fios n never had internet worries again.
DAMN!! Just had to get that out the way. I've had Comcast for about the last 6 yrs. and have always wanted FiOS. Not too mention Comcast has really bad service for the $245 I pay each month. So decided to switch to FiOS next month, its still expensive but I've been a little concerned about the speeds I purchased with what I'll be getting. Thanks for the truth!
Fake as review!!! I have tried FIOS and Switched back to Comcast. Why? Uploads were better, but we do hard core download streaming. At least 12-15 simultaneous connections watching HD videos or even 4K streaming and FIOS just didn't have enough horsepower to keep up. I have ASUS ac2400 with Netgear modem supporting up to 600Mbps. Comcast Rocks!!!
I have 179 down and 12 upload. I pay around 76$ with my own cable modem and router. We use almost 900-1000GB/ month with at least 5 simultaneous connections running 1080p to 4K videos and not even once have buffered. Try fios and let me know. These numbers are in Jersey especially suburbs of philly.
I recently relocated and was forced to switch to Comcast due to the fact that Fios isn't supported in my new location. Long story short I experienced the same speed differences outlined in this video.
Comcast really needs to update their archaic Internet service.
it all depends on your router and computer. I have the fastest Comcast plan and a nice router so I get around 200 mbps if I got a gigabit card for my pc (1 gbps) I would be getting around 500 to 800 mbps some computers stock only support up to 30mb.
I really don't even need home phone since I have cheap Cricket wireless unlimited talk n text with 2.5 Gb data. and everyone has phone in my family. For TV (ain't nobody got time for that). I prefer watching youtube. (prank videos r awesome).
+seign wow r u really getting 500mbps. thats a lot, comcast doesn't even have that speed available I think. I have connected to fios like 3 month ago. its working pretty great day and night. Very happy with this now, but I have a contract discount etc, my bill is gonna be way more once my contract finishes.
+Danial Moosa I'm thinking about switching as well. I've been a comcast cable internet subscriber since it was introduced in '97(?) and for the first half of that time, it was great and the fastest thing around. For the last few years though I've been having nothing but problems with comcast and their support is terrible. Not to mention the constant throttling of my connection during certain hours of the night.
The only reason I haven't switched sooner is because Comcast does have the better television package IMO and their menu screen is much better not to mention fast than FiOS. But to be honest, I don't really even watch television anymore and when I do, I'm watching Netflix. So I think I'm going to scrap the cable television and the telephone (who needs it with cell phones) and simply install a 500Mbps FiOS box.
This video and the article that it came from is so Verizon biased it's absolutely insane. Read the article. Also, 105 mbps is not the fastest xFinity has, it's 150 mbps. Also the price difference is astronomical.
For the 150mbps with Comcast it's $79.99 a month
For the SAME speed with FIOS it's almost double. $139.99 a month.
That is overpriced. I don't care if the "upload speeds" are the same as the downloads. Online gaming (which is what I do) doesn't use upload speeds unless you're running your own server for whatever reason, which I'm not.
I don't do video uploads or video editing and I could care less if my "pictures" upload in 1 second versus 10 seconds. LOL.
Sorry but I'll save money and go with Comcast Xfinity. They are WAY cheaper.
+Legend of the Zygote and North Korea has what.. 60 people that can use the Internet? How many have unfiltered access? Your right, they can view what their governments allows them to see l, at super fast speeds. Btw most people doing basic internet usage only need a max of about 6... maybe 7mbps and that will do for multiple wifi devices.
+facher83 yeah, but my wifi speeds are consistent. consistently slow anyhow, even my hardline speeds arent that great. my point is that comcast sucks, on top of that, my internet connection/tv is almost always down here.
+Trevock1 Ehhhh. I only have Comcast here, and 1.5 Mbps Centurylink.
When I would download off of Steam, I would get about 20 Mbps on Comcast around Noon. What was I paying for? 100 Mbps. Hardwired in.
So now, I pay for 50 Mbps, since 100 made no sense.
I have also had FiOS up in Washington before. Cable companies speed test well, but perform like dirt compared to what they claim they are giving you. Fiber connections, including FiOS, performs better than advertised. Cable you're lucky to get 75% of what you pay for on a good hour, sometimes half of what you pay for normally.
I had comcast for 7 years, and moved to a place that uses verizon fios. In both houses we were supposed to be getting 50 mbps down. Comcast was less reliable but faster overall. Verizon fios was slower but more reliable. In the winter some days comcast was slow as fucking shit, but I was usually able to watch a 1080p video on youtube with no buffering. On verizon fios I'm barely able to watch a 720p fucking video on some days. At least I don't have to worry about my shit randomly disconnecting for a minutes at a time. This shit still blows though.
Cool thanks a lot. This is the speed that verizon was JUST trying to sell me on, saying it is the absolute best for gaming. Right now I have Comcast 105 and like you said, its fast as shit but I constantly get kicked off. Constantly. I guess I'll just stick to unplugging this comcast router every 2 days, rather than have it be reliable and lag like hell.
Comcast is decent for people who don't use internet too often, but will have to "share" with everyone else. If there are others in the area using cable, then your bandwidth will be limited (throttled) so that everyone can use it at once. FiOS is better for business/gaming/people who use the internet more often and don't want to be limited.
Had Comast this morning, Downs were about 75mbps Ups maybe 7-10 Out of Metro Boston. Verizon now this evening Downs about 75mbps . .Ups maybe 7-15. That being said I got this for $160/mo vs Over $225 for Comcast. And the TV boxes were newer and could record more shows at once.
Post script to this: I had a bit of flickering with my 3 TV's and some signal freezing. I went back and undid one of the splitters and put everything on one six way. Now my Ups are 45 :D And the TV seemed (for now) to have sorted themselves out.
That's fibre-optic services for ya' lol, This is the reason why a lot of homes don't have services like Fios, etc available yet, it's because it's expensive for the companies to install, so you're pretty privileged. lol fibre-optic is like the latest in internet technology, with DSL being some of the oldest, hence the slow speeds, and Cable being someone newer, but still not that new, hence the slightly faster speeds, and as I said, fibre-optic, is the newest, hence the fastest speeds.
Originally I had the FIOS 35/35, then 50/25 which was just upgraded to 50/50 plan. I just upgraded that to the 75/75 plan which added an upgraded router for only $5 more a month, and couldn't be happier. I now get 84/83Mbps consistently. One thing I've noticed is up to the 75/75Mbps plan, FIOS adds a significant overhead, purportedly to support their on demand service without degrading their internet service. They don't seem to do it though with the higher speeds, like is what's shown here in this video. This I assume is the 150/150 plan but you are only getting a 3Mbps overhead, contrast to the 75/75 plan where you get about a 9Mbps overhead.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
