Stocks in this article: VZ

LONG BEACH, Calif., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Californians are firmly in the Internet fast lane with Verizon's FiOS Quantum Internet service, and the company is spreading the word through the FiOS SoCal Experience, which will support local community causes and reward people's creativity.  To access the Multimedia News Release, visit: newzbee.com/VerizonFiOSSoCal.

FiOS Quantum Internet offers consumers and small businesses some of the nation's fastest mass scale Internet speeds available, featuring download/upload speeds of 50/25, 75/35, 150/65 and 300/65 megabits per second (Mbps).  (This FiOS Internet speed grid shows specific examples of the benefits of faster downstream and upstream speeds.)

Verizon's FiOS SoCal Experience team will meet Southern Californians where they work, live and play in uniquely designed, tech-laden FiOS SoCal Experience vehicles.  The Experience teams and vehicles will make appearances at Southern California community events, festivals, business mixers and residential neighborhoods through the summer of 2013.   Discover daily locations of the FiOS SoCal Experience fleet; find ways to support local community causes; and learn how to win by conquering creativity through custom design by visiting www.Verizon.com/FiOSSoCal .

The Experience fleet includes an iconic 1965 Volkswagen van that has been transformed into a mobile entertainment experience, custom-fitted with FiOS Internet and FiOS TV capability, along with 42-inch HDTVs.  At each vehicle-based event, visitors can participate in all aspects of the FiOS SoCal Experience, including:

Influencing Local ChangeA key facet of the FiOS SoCal Experience is support for local causes, and Verizon and the local community will team up to support its non-profit organizations.  Verizon will donate at least $5,000 each, in addition to volunteer time to a variety of local organizations.  The local community will play an integral role in deciding exactly how the charities will use their funds.

Conquering Creativity, Winning PrizesAs a salute to the Southern California way of life, the FiOS SoCal Experience offers locals a unique opportunity to design and win SoCal staples.  The "Conquer Creativity" sweepstakes enables participants to virtually design graphics for a beach bike, skate or surfboard, and enter those designs in the sweepstakes.  With a unique, computer-based design template, users can integrate colors, personal photos and text into their designs.   

Each week, one sweepstakes entry will be randomly selected, and the winner will receive the item he or she entered – a surfboard, skateboard or beach cruiser – with graphics inspired by their design.  The winning sweepstakes items will be custom-made by local craftsmen, including surfboard shaper Josh Oldenburg and skateboard company SK8 Factory.
