A new speed test shows that verizon fiber network called Fios can actually deliver internet speeds of up to 10gbps, thats 100000mbs. Nearly 3.5 years after boosting FiOS internet speeds with G-PON, the company is now out testing XG-PON2 — a newfangled iteration that somehow enables 10Gbps upstream and downstream from its existing fiber network. If you’ll recall, we heard just a few weeks back that the outfit was close to being able to serve GigE on its existing platform, and now that this field trial has been successful, we’d say the boundaries are stretched even further. In the test, technicians were able to get down a 2.3GB movie in less than 4 seconds.
