Verizon FiOS is increasing download speeds to as fast as 300 Mbps to residential customers, the company announced today.

The increase is largely to meet bandwidth demands from intensive video and gaming, says company spokesperson John Bonono in this inteview with Beet.TV

The service will be for areas with FiOS.  For communities without, the service is unlikely to be available as the company has stopped the national expansion.
