Why companies are choosing 6.18.2012 to make announcements is a mystery, and Verizon is also adding to that mystery by hopping onto the 6.18-bandwagon.  On that day, Verizon (accompanying Microsoft’s and Nokia’s big announcements) will be making an announcement that may confirm their FiOS broadband service change.

Why companies are choosing 6.18.2012 to make announcements is a mystery, and Verizon is adding to that mystery by hopping onto the 6.18-bandwagon.  On that day, Verizon (accompanying Microsoft’s and Nokia’s big announcements) will be making an announcement, or rather a commencement for their FiOS broadband service change.

Speculations of FiOS change in bandwidth packages have gone on for awhile now, and most likely Verizon will make an official announcement regarding those changes on Monday.  Verizon will change their current highest package, among others, from 150 Mbps downstream to 300 Mbps.  It is also speculated that Verizon will increase their current pricings along with the increase in bandwidth. 

A recently uploaded video to YouTube teases consumers with a semi apocalyptic blackout of all devices–which, within seconds come back on and “wowing” anyone that’s in front of a device connected to the internet.  The video seems to imply that Verizon FiOS saved the world from the doldrums provided by competing ISPs.  See for yourself.
