Speculation...

Well.. what would be groundbreaking is parity of the speed/pricing network-wide... This would mean that those crappy cable companies pumping out 3-16 megabits are gonna get IT smashed right over their heads.. A net gain for Verizon, net upgrade headache for the cable companies.

Generally the cheapest pricing is in the NY metro where broadband is cheaper... but bringing it foot-print wide would be groundbreaking. Yeah, a pipe dream.. it will probably be something less spectacular such as increased / symmetrical speeds in their most competitive markets or commitment to upgrade to GPONS in 20/5 30/5 50/10 markets. 20/20, 30/30, 50/50? (suggested pricing.. $35, $45, $85) Nah...

** Or, something as simple as offering VOIP as a bundle option and finally competing apples to apples.

Aside from these, I can't think of much else that would help the FIOS product from being more competitive. Other than *significant* price reductions / significant increases in speed.

The public and cable co's wait with baited breath.

It's almost certainly 15/15 in some markets and 20/20 in others for ~$65/mo.

I'm going to lean toward a 20/20, 30/30, and 50/30 tier announcement.

No, most people do not care about upload. As big as this community is, BBR people are the minority of broadband users.
