Is there a reason to keep FE over DV?
FE is a regulated service in most states. If you have a problem that can't be resolved directly, you have recourse to your public utilities commission. FE is tariffed. VZ has to apply to your state commission for a rate increase. VZ can charge anything they like for DV; if you have a problem that you can't resolve with DV your only recourse is to switch to another provider.
And yet, there it is, sitting right there, cheaper and with a more rich feature set.
I hope that Verizon continues shifting the burdensome costs of anti-growth regulation to the users of regulated services and letting customers on non-regulated services enjoy the cost benefits of the free market.
