Comcast's 300 Mbps won't equal Verizon's 300 Mbps....

Both companies are going back and forth on numbers when in reality Verizon has much more leverage with how their network is setup....

Correct... Comcast's plan is 5 Mbps faster.

I kinda wish Verizon would just bump the provisioning on its tier to 306 Mbps...just to tick off Comcast. Two can play at the one-upmanship game.

Just marketing tricks but hey it works for Comcast... if Verizon wanted to make sure no MSO could match their speeds they would offer high uploads like a 300/300 Mbps but they didn't why?

Besides in the near future in markets where Verizon can't offer anything respectable (all of non FiOS markets) they'll be offering the next best thing to fiber... cable's (Comcast, Cox, TWC, BrightHouse) DOCSIS3.x

Yes. A whole whopping 5 Mbps for $95 more per month. That's about as competitive as Intel's Pentium 4 Gigahertz war vs AMD if you ask me.

I don't see a point in bothering when Verizon FiOS consistently tends to deliver faster than advertised speeds.
