An Invitation to the Game of Thrones Season 5 sneak peak preview at HBO New York City was not to be missed!
I was not anywhere near up to date on what was happening regarding the Game of Thrones Series so what could I do?

When it comes to streaming HD video, you’ll need a broadband speed, or bitrate, that’s capable of handling a progressive scan rate of 720p. Since your HD-capable screen is refreshing the screen 60 times per second, this means ensuring that all those video frames are received and ready to play before they’re needed. Your computer or other device will cache all the incoming data and queue the video frames so they’re ready for smooth playback. Read more here
There were a lot of episodes to watch in order to catch up to Game of Thrones Season 5 so I needed my broadband speed to be extremely fast when using HBO Go!
Powering Multiple Devices
The more Internet devices you use at one time, the greater the drain on your connection. FiOS Quantum Internet has the extra speed you need to stay fast.
Faster Downloads and Streaming
FiOS Quantum Internet connection means faster downloads of movies and TV. Cable “boosts” only work on a small portion of large files – less than 1% of a 5G HD movie download.
Virtually Lag-free Gaming
With radically faster speeds, gaming on FiOS is virtually lag-free. No more hiccups or breaks in the action.
Uploads in a Flash
People often think of Internet as download-only. But if you like to post pictures or videos, you’ll love the lightning-fast upload speed of FiOS.
100% Fiber Optics
Fiber optics offer a smoother, more reliable connection. With FiOS, enjoy ultra-fast Internet on 100% fiber optics, delivered straight to your home.
FiOS Internet Speed Comparison Tool
My household has 75/75 Mbps which is best for 5-7 devices at the same time.
This speed works well for uploading and sharing videos on YouTube and serious multi-user gaming.
I can also stream up to 7 HD videos simultaneously with my Verizon FiOS Internet Plan choice.
