NEW YORK, May 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Just as we keep our car ready to roll by periodically checking the air in its tires and getting it tuned up, small-business owners can keep their operation in the fast lane with reliable broadband and communications services.
And now's the time to act. For the next few weeks, until June 27, Verizon is offering small businesses a free FiOS Internet-speed upgrade. For instance, a small-business owner who orders a new FiOS Internet and voice bundle with equal upload/download speeds of 50 megabits per second will pay the price of Verizon's 25/25 Mbps service for a two-year term agreement.
Why's that important? The level of upload activity on the FiOS network is expected to double by late 2016 and to continue to grow, according to Verizon's projections. In addition, with the Internet of Things fast becoming a reality for small businesses, equal download and upload speeds will be essential for operations. If you have a number of devices using the same broadband connection, then a faster Internet speed can prevent delays in sending and receiving files.

As you review your broadband and communications needs, you also might want to consider adding TV to entertain your customers and inform your employees. Verizon's Custom TV (http://vz.to/TVforSmallbiz) solution allows you to pay only for the types of channels that will best interest your customers or employees.
