If you’ve been shopping for business-grade internet, you’ve probably encountered plans from two well-known internet service providers (ISPs): Verizon and Comcast.
Both of these mega-corporations offer high-speed internet access to businesses across the nation.
The top-speed Comcast plan—Business Internet 1 Gig—reaches download speeds at a full 1,000 Mbps (or 1 Gbps), but it’ll cost you $300 more per month than the similarly fast Verizon plan.
Also, 1 Gig internet from Comcast isn’t pure fiber; it uses a hybrid fiber-coaxial cable connection, so its upload speeds max out at 35 Mbps—you won’t get the symmetric connection you do with pure fiber from Verizon. At publishing time, pricing and speeds are current but are subject to change. Both companies’ fiber plans are symmetric, which means their upload speeds match (or nearly match, in the case of Verizon’s fastest plan) their download speeds.
