Depends on what you pay for. Some packaging allows for faster speeds than others obviously. However there are a few things that factor into this that may change. What did you ping, is this a speed test site? The ping isn't terrible but could change depending on the server you used to ping.

The Up/Down speeds are close to each other, which is normal. Now if you are paying for, like lets say 100mb up/down, and these are your results then yes you need to contact FIOS. Give us more details on your services and we can help steer you better.

I know I am paying a fortune, so if I learn they are slowing down my service, I will be ticked off.

Well they wouldn't throttle your services completely all around, just maybe to competitor sites but thats after Net Neutrality goes away but isn't a thing yet. I would just check your bill and look at the package info and see what your speeds are. If you are paying for more than, lets say 20mb up/down, then you need to talk to them. If not, then its close. They are only required to deliver you like 60-75% of your package speed before they have to act on it for repairs. Its a mess.
