    Verizon FiOS is one of Verizon's TV, phone, and internet services for home and businesses. FiOS = Fiber Optics. Pretty good service for a reasonable price.

    Verizon | FiOS Internet (High-Speed Fiber-Optic Broadband Internet)

    And yes you have to pay for it if it is available in your area.

    I too have the 25/25 package with Verizon, but I am on the east coast.

    Signum & lol - You're both getting upwards of 9Mbps to your Droids via WiFi from Fios. I'm getting max 4Mpbs to my Droid Eris via WiFi from Fios. Any idea why? Is the Eris WiFi card slower than the Motorola Droid? Seems like my Eris isn't even taking advantage of 802.11b speeds, though everything is configured for 802.11g. Today I'm getting 12Mbps to my iBook through the same WiFi connection. The reason I started looking into this is streaming video is choppy.

    I'm so jealous, I want fios but I'm stuck with the 3 Meg DSL. Vzw doesn't even offer the 7 Meg DSL where I live

    FIOS is the Sh_t! My phone is faster than my laptop was with Comcast.

    Also, not sure how you posted your phone's results, but here's mine:
    12.61Mb/s down
    2.34 Mb/s up

    OK, so what am I doing wrong?

    My home WiFi gets speeds up to 16mps, but I only get like 1.5-2.0 on my Droid connected to my WiFi network.

    So I have no clue what you are doing to get 9mps with your Droid on WiFi.

    Kodiak- are you using a Verizon provided WiFi? With the Verizon (Actiontec router) WiFi I'm getting 4Mbps. I added a linksys WiFi g router as an access point for the other side of the house and was getting only 2.8Mbps down. Shuffled the channels, set WiFi g only and now I'm getting 5Mbps from the linksys.

    How are you using speedtest.net on a droid? It requires flash.

    Yep....Downloaded an app from market. Are you saying that's inaccurate? What site should I use?

    Also, yes, I have a netgear wireless router not verizon. Too late to return it. Oh well, don't really do a lot of surfing at home, anyway, but would be nice to get max speed. Crazy thing is, I get upload speeds that are actually a little faster (d/l 1500kbs, u/l 2000kbs).

    OK, changed test server and it's much faster. Different server still gives me @4.5 down and 2.1 up. Question is, which numbers are the best gauge? I'd guess the fastest is probably most accurate.
