Verizon FiOS Quantum

FiOS Quantum

When I first heard about FiOS Quantum I was a bit confused about what it was or how it was any different from Verizon FiOS or how that compared to Comcast Xfinity or what Time Warner or Brighthouse had to offer. After a bit of digging around I figured out it was Verizon’s way of separating out and naming their fastest service tiers.

Quantum is a subset of Verizon FiOS, an all digital fiber optic to-the-home technology that carries fiber all the way to your house. This in turn enables blazing fast internet speeds that are much faster than what you can get through cable (and a crisp clear TV picture if you have FiOS TV too). On this page I have broken down everything that you might want to know about Verizon’s FiOS Quantum.


FiOS Quantum Speeds

Average Internet speed 3/1 Mbps
FiOS Standard 15/5 Mbps
FiOS Quantum Tier 1 50/25 Mbps
FiOS Quantum Tier 2 75/35 Mbps
FiOS Quantum Tier 3 150/65 Mbps
FiOS Quantum Tier 4 300/65 Mbps

What is FiOS Quantum?

In short – what Verizon calls “Quantum” are just the fastest tiers that are available of the entire line of Verizon FiOS services. The standard Verizon FiOS plan starts at and 15 Mbps / 5 Mbps (Megabit per second downloads / Megabit per second uploads) which is already much faster than the average American connection of 3 Mbps / 1 Mbps. FiOS Quantum speeds start at 50 Mbps down, 25 Mbps up (which is over 3x faster than their base FiOS plans) and go all the way up to 300 Mbps and now 500 Mbps downloads and 100 Mbps uploads.

FiOS is the only service that has 100% fiber optics to your home (and not just to the neighborhood hub). This really makes a difference if you have many computers in your home accessing the internet at the same time and gives you much faster downloads and TV/movie streaming with a crystal clear picture. FiOS Quantum also gives you much faster upload speeds than just about any of its competitiors. You can upload large movie files and photos in seconds.

The caveat is that FiOS is only available in certain areas where Verizon has rolled out their fiber connections.

FiOS Quantum Prices

Quantum provides the fastest internet connection available to a lot of parts of America. Unless you live in Chattanooga or Kansas City, FiOS Quantum is most likely the fastest internet connection you have available. And of course they charge extra for that kind of bandwidth, but not by as much as you might think. Quantum prices run from $10 more per month than their normal FiOS plans – all the way up to $300+ per month to be able to get the crazy-fast top tier levels of internet service.

Here are the basic breakdowns – these are for internet only. It makes a lot more sense to bundle TV + Internet most of the time (see deals section below). Right now new customers get $20 off per month for the first year so if you sign up for a 2 year agreement the price chart below shows you the monthly price in the first year. The monthly price in the second year will be $20 more per month than what you see in the chart (example: in year 2 the $59.99 per month will be $79.99 per month) but that still includes a $5 per month discount over regular pricing.

See Verizon’s site for official pricing and details as there’s no guarantee that these prices are reflective of the most current promotions.

Deals on FiOS Quantum

It almost always makes more sense to get FiOS Quantum as a part of a TV + Internet bundle package or their Triple Play (TV + Internet + Phone). Verizon tends to run a lot of different deals and promotions for all tiers of their FiOS plans. Sometimes it can be difficult to sort through them all. All the different packages and combinations can make your head spin. This is why I’ve sorted through what they’re offering and filtered out just the best deals online that are currently available.
