Verizon has published new performance benchmarks for its FiOS enterprise broadband service, claiming that a trial deployment of the fibre-optic network delivered speeds nearing 1GB/s.
The network logged throughput speeds of 925MB/s, offering the first glimpse of what Verizon hopes to deliver with FiOS in the coming years.
The firm believes that FiOS has adequate bandwidth to deliver additional services for enterprise and home users.
"This kind of capacity will allow Verizon to meet FiOS customers' needs by offering more bandwidth to support services such as 3D TV, ultra HD TV, multiplayer gaming and HD video conferencing," said Verizon technology group executive director Brian Whitton.
Other additions to FiOS could include remote backup and desktop virtualisation services, the firm said.
Verizon is not the only company seeking to deliver a 1GB/s internet service. Google has unveiled plans for a fibre-optic network capable of reaching similar speeds.
