VZ already has a plan for 500Mb for 2013 in the works.
Which, sadly, does those of us on BPON absolutely no good. I need to upgrade a business location from 35/35 to one of the Quantum tiers and am told nothing beyond 50/25 is available at that address.
Very frustrating. Just 1 mile down the road, another location is served from a different CO and has all tiers available.
Unfortunately that is not a fault of Verizon's. Although new builds are GPON, those that started off with BPON will remain that way until enough new FIOS subscriptions cause it to meet its capacity, at which point you'll have GPON. I was on BPON since 2007 until I finally was put on GPON in late 2011, probably due to a huge boom in new housing developments in my area in the past two years.
