We all have heard all the talk about who is the fastest. Everyone wonders if Verizon Fios is actually faster that Cablevision Optimum Online.
I have real world proof that verizons fiber network is faster than cablevision optimum online triple play. Below we will see what happens when Verizon Fios vs Cablevision Optimum online. I actually got both verizon fios and optimum online broadband services hooked up and performed wireless speed test from my laptop based on both fios vs optimum online mbps. I first connected to verizon fios and got a whooping 1.2 MB/sec download speed. I then connected to another router in my location that was connected to cablevision optimum online and only got 618 KB/sec. That means that verizon fios is 2x faster that cablevision optimum online.
The battle is on between Verizon Fios vs Cablevision Optimum Online.
I have to admit that I was supprised. I always thought optimum was very fast and that fios was over rated. Fios is the winner when it comes to speed. Cablevision does have a boost service for an additional cost but I do not have numbers on that and it is for an additional cost so it would not be a fair comparison. I think fios would probably beat that one as well. Technology is very competitive so I think the cable company and telephone company will compete neck and neck for years to come. As far as the battle of Verizon Fios vs Cablevision Optimum Online, Verizon fios is king for now.
Take a look at my real world speed test:
Verizon Fios vs Optimum Online is sure to be an on going battle as each one of these giants developes and release technology update. As you can see from the above results Verizons fiber is faster for now in both upload and downloads. Now a days with the popularity of video sharing sites like Youtube, Daily Motion and Vimeo, uploads speeds are becoming increasingly important.
