Comcast Will Introduce 305Mbps Internet Speeds over Verizon FiOS Lines

This puts Comcast on top of Verizon in terms of speed, but not by much.

Ahh, the blazing fast speed of FiOS. While most folks are stuck with sub-20Mbps internet speeds, FiOS customers are able to get themselves a ridiculously fast connection. Verizon's top tier package puts you at an impressive 300Mbps.

Comcast, which is using the same fiber optic lines as Verizon, is upping that speed ever so slightly. Comcast's new tier comes in at 305Mbps – a difference you won't even notice, but that technically means they can say "faster than Verizon." There's no word yet on the rollout date.
