Congratulations to Angel B. of Elizabeth, NJ! You've won the Verizon Nikon D3000 Giveaway!
Celebrate the Holidays with a New Nikon D3000!
Sponsored by Verizon
Just in time for the holidays, Verizon is sponsoring a giveaway of a Nikon D3000 10.2 megapixel digital SLR camera. Valued at $549, the Nikon D3000 makes capturing high-quality family photos a cinch.
However, sharing those treasured holiday memories can be a tedious task without a fast reliable Internet connection. Remember, your Internet connection isn’t really fast unless it’s fast both up and down. And it’s the upstream speed that makes photo-sharing quick and easy.
The FiOS Advantage
Consider this: With the FiOS upload speed of 15 Mbps, you can post 20 digital photos (approximately 50 megabytes) to your Facebook or your favorite photo-sharing site in about 25 seconds, while it takes a cable 2 Mbps upload speed more than 3 minutes. When you start talking about posting home videos of 500 MB or larger, the speed advantage of FiOS over cable becomes even more dramatic.
Another factor contributing to a “dragging” Internet, which in-turn makes uploading photos a chore, can be that cable Internet is shared by hundreds of users. FiOS Internet is shared by no more than 32 users for a consistently fast Internet experience.
What’s the bottom-line? Know your Internet speeds and, more specifically, make sure your upload speeds are fast, consistent and reliable. Without a doubt, Verizon’s top-rated FiOS Internet offers the fastest upload speeds available, making memory sharing quick and easy.
