File this under batshit crazy. Verizon is now offering a 500/100Mbps service tier where FiOS is available.

According to Verizon, you'll be able to download a 2 hour HD movie in 1.4 minutes and upload a 2 hour HD video in 6.9 minutes. Fast, right? Assuming you get the advertised speeds, of course.


The newly announced FiOS Quantum tier will set you back at least $310/month for double play and $330 for triple play. Only small businesses will be able to get the 500Mbps tier as a stand-alone service. Verizon hopes to roll out this tier to all FiOS markets by next year. [Verizon via Engadget]
