They can do that with DSL. 3/768 for $30 is a decent deal IMO.
Yes, they can... and they did (I used to have it, before I got FiOS). But when FiOS rolls in, it rolls right over DSL--they stop offering it. Verizon really has no FiOS tier that's particularly appealing to those people who have not already chosen to get FiOS. Give people what they want, and they'll buy your product. 5/2 for $30 will pull in more new customers than 15/5 for $50 (and, yeah, some current customers will drop down to that, but, really, wouldn't Verizon rather they go to a cheaper tier than leave for another ISP?).
